U900 / The Ventures – Sleigh Ride (Tab)

U900 – Sleigh Ride (Tab) The adorable Japanese duo have put together a Christmas album. But they don’t stray away from Ventures territory with this one. The main melody on this one is played on a low-G ukulele with a pick. You can get away with using your fingers, but the low-G is a must. […]

Silent Night (Single Note Version)(Tab)

Silent Night (Single Note Version)(Tab) MP3 Since it’s Christmas I thought I’d let you take a break from the tricky arrangements and I’d put up a couple of single note arrangements (along with easy chords) of a couple of Christmas tunes. For kids, newbies and people too drunk and bloated to play anything more complicated. […]

Christmas Carols for Ukulele by John King: Review

Christmas is coming fast and it’s time to start practicing a few tunes to entertain the family. With John King’s Classical Ukulele and Famous Solos and Duets for ‘Ukulele being the two best ukulele tab books around and his arrangements of Carol of the Bells and What Child Is This? being great, I felt pretty […]

Garfunkel and Oates – Present Face (Chords and Tab)

Garfunkel and Oates – Present Face (Chords) I’ve been patiently waiting to put this one up since seeing this video starring ‘thingamy off of Heroes‘ and ‘was he the one who was in My Name Is Earl once?’ I don’t know why they uploaded in January. Anyhoo, eleven months later it’s finally December and I […]

Christmas Ukulele: You’re A Mean One, Mr Grinch (Chords)

You’re A Mean One, Mr Grinch (Chords)(PDF) I always use this song as the soundtrack to my pre-Christmas chores: stealing presents, setting light to trees and punching reindeer. So I’ve written up the chords for Jonathan K Miller’s excellent ukulele version.

Christmas Ukulele: Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree (Chords)

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree (Chords)(PDF) The first and most famous version of Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree was by Brenda Lee, but these chords are taken from the version by Roses Polenzani and Cousins. All the chords are pretty simple. And I’ve substituted the E chord in the intro for an E7 to make […]

Christmas Ukulele: All I Want For Christmas Is You (Chords)

Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You (Chords)(PDF) The secret is out; I’m a massive Mariah fan. Or not. I decided to write up the song after watching the ukulele version by Mariel a la Mode and Uni and her Ukelele. But I ended up missing the jazzier chords in it and […]

Christmas Ukulele: White Christmas (Chords)

Jason Castro – White Christmas (Easy Chords)(PDF) Jason ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow on American Idol‘ Castro has just released a ukulele version of White Christmas and you can get it free on Amazon (or on ReverbNation if you’re outside the US). I don’t want to be mean at Christmas time, but I’m guessing that isn’t […]

Christmas Ukulele: Silent Night (Tab)

MP3 Silent Night (Tab)(PDF) In the ukulele harmonics post I promised tab for a harmonics only version of Silent Night. I hope you’ve been practicing the stuff in that post, because here it is. And it’s tricky. This version starts off fairly easy. The natural harmonics at the twelfth fret shouldn’t cause too many difficulties. […]
