IDLES – Danny Nedelko (Tab)

IDLES – Danny Nedelko (Tab) Since immigrants invented the ukulele, it’s only right to have a song celebrating immigrants on here. And what a celebration it is. Idles turned in a barnstorming performance of it in their already legendary Glastonbury set. And, along with Fontaines D.C., have convinced me that punk isn’t dead yet. Idles […]

An Assortment of Tabs and Chords

Sometimes I put together tabs and chord sheets for my amusement that are so niche I assume no one has any interest in them. I’ve collected a few of those together today in hopes that one person will have a passing interest in one of them. – Only Connect Theme (Baritone ukulele tab) – They […]

Only Connect Theme (Baritone Tab)

Dawson Sabatini – Only Connect Theme (Tab) One of the many areas the BBC excels in is the exceptionally nerdy quiz show. I can’t imagine anyone else coming up with museum based quiz or a show like Only Connect where questions are chosen via Egyptian hieroglyphs. Connecting Only Connect to ukuleles is very easy. Season […]

They Might Be Giants – It Could Be Worse (Chords)

They Might Be Giants – It Could Be Worse I’m a big fan of Sarah Vowell’s books. But I’m an even bigger fan of her audiobooks. The Partly Cloudy Patriot, an exploration of her uncomfortable obsession with American history, includes narration from Conan O’Brien, Stephen Colbert and David Cross. Even more importantly, it’s sprinkled with […]

Matt Berry – Toast of London Theme (Tab)

Matt Berry – Toast of London Theme (Tab) Matt Berry is best known for his roles in The IT Crowd and Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace plus my favourite sketch of all time: Snuff Box‘s guitar instruction DVD. But he’s also a prolific musician releasing seven studio albums including an entire album of TV theme covers. The […]

Memphis Kansas Breeze – Human Skin Truck Baby (Chords and Tab)

Memphis Kansas Breeze – Human Skin Truck Baby (Chords) This song comes from episode 616 of Comedy Bang Bang. It’s the culmination of a trio of country parody songs from Brantley Aldean and Harland Haywood (a.k.a. Drew Tarver and Carl Tart) and it had me crying with laughter. Here’s a uke version of the intro […]

Hitman 2 – Santa Fortuna Town Theme (Tab)

Niels Bye Nielsen – Santa Fortuna Town Theme (Tab) I’ve raved about Hitman before on here. But I haven’t given enough praise for how much the music adds to the experience. The music works to subtly differentiate different areas of the maps and set the mood for each one. This excellent little guitar piece is […]

The Band – The Weight (Chords and Tab)

The Band – The Weight (Chords) I was inspired to write this one up by Playing for Change’s version featuring a vast array of musicians including Ringo, Robbie Robertson and a bit of uke from Taimane. The video shows off what a great ensemble piece this can be. Making it seem like a good idea […]
