Friday Links: Willie K RIP

Hawaiian ukulele legend, Willie K dies at age 59 after 2-year battle with cancer. Willie was a consumate musician who was as at home playing the blues and shredding with Steven Tyler as he was performing classical music using his startling operatic voice. – An auction of Formby banjoleles and memorabilia turned out nice again […]

EatMyUke – Final Fantasy 7 Soundtrack Medley (Tab)

You might have noticed that I’m a big fan of EatMyUke (aka Stan) and highly recommend watching his fantastic ukulele medley videos.

Little Richard – Tutti Frutti (Tab)

Little Richard – Tutti Frutti (Tab) On hearing of the sad news of the death of Little Richard I had to bash out this classic. Refined and precise, it is not. But hopefully it’s got some of the spirit of the original and is closer to Little Richard than it is to Pat Boone. It’s […]
