Robert Johnson Ukulele Tab Book: Friday Links

There’s a Robert Johnson ukulele tab book on the way. Pictures: Martin factory 1925, Melvin Goaté the ukulele goat, Death Meets Amanda Palmer, Don’t you DARE walk away from me, Nick Nolte on guitarlele, gig bag maker and his mule (thanks to Phredd). The pUKES have some sixty ukuleles between them and have started reviewing […]

Emeli Sandé – Next to Me (Instrumental Tab)

Emeli Sandé – Next to Me (Tab) The Olympics coinciding with Adele’s maternity leave certainly worked out well for Emeli Sandé. My mum requested this one. I wasn’t intending to tab it so it’s pretty messy and busked together. I’d recommend you using this as a basis rather than copying it exactly. Some pointers: Bars […]

Uke Leash Review

Ukulele straps are a bit of a vexed issue. Traditionalists dismiss ukulele straps as being unnecessary. While plenty of people find them essential – with problems varying from boob-interference to the need to play lightening fast licks. For my own playing, I’m mostly in the traditional camp. I don’t use a strap myself. But I’ve […]

Allo Darlin’ – Tallulah (Chords)

Allo Darlin’ – Tallulah (Chords) Allo Darlin’ are doing pretty well for themselves these days. And this song has picked up a fair few requests. It’s very straightforward. Just four chords. But does use a capo on the second fret. You can achieve the same thing by using D-tuning. But I’ve kept the chord names […]

Grimes, Allo Darlin’: UkeTube

In this week’s line up: electronic grave-wave sensation Grimes (with whom I share a taste in food), Allo Darlin’ pay tribute to Neil Armstrong, Jake Shimabukuro, Victoria Vox’s new duo, LP does another in her cover series and plenty more. Full Playlist

Pete Howlett Firefly: Ukulele Window Shopping

I’ve been underwhelmed by the electric ukes I’ve tried but I’d certainly be willing to give this Pete Howlett Firefly Ukelectic a go. String Tinkers cigarbox ukes (and other instruments). Kickstarter for a plastic ukulele. Looks interesting but the minimum is more than I’d lay down on a Kickstarter. Plus it’s got a huge goal […]

Neil Armstrong: Friday Links

Neil Armstrong: first ukulelist on the moon. You can celebrate the great man with the chords to Allo Darlin’s Neil Armstrong (thanks to Konrad). New Music: Two solo ventures from band members. Small Fry by Will Grove-White (of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain) and Nocturnal Emissions by Ian Emmerson (of The Re-entrants). Also out […]

Ryan Gosling – Smoking Gun Bleeding Knives (Tab)

Ryan Gosling – Smoking Gun Bleeding Knives (Tab) Hey girl, the Breaking Bad tab I put up earlier was really short so I made you another one. This is the ukulele bit in Blue Valentine (and on the DVD menu) that isn’t You Always Hurt the One You Love. Buy the Blue Valentine Soundtrack

Breaking Bad Theme (Slide Tab)

Dave Porter – Breaking Bad Theme (Slide Tab) I’ve been bitching about modern theme tunes for a long time. They all have atmospheric, doom-laden theme tunes you can’t even remember let alone hum in the shower. And the Breaking Bad theme is no exception. But the series is great so I wanted to do a […]
