Gustavo Santaolalla – Beyond Desolation (Tab)

Gustavo Santaolalla – Beyond Desolation (Tab) The third and final of my tabs from the game The Last of Us Part II. The piece is unadorned and mournful. It’s an excellent piece for anyone practicing their fingerpicking. It’s nice and slow but there are plenty of switches in the picking pattern to get used to. […]

Gustavo Santaolalla – The Last of Us Part II Theme (Tab)

Gustavo Santaolalla – The Last of Us Part II Theme (Tab) Another Last of Us video. This time the theme tune by the master of the Bolivian super-ukulele Gustavo Santaolalla. Mercifully, it’s much easier to play than the theme to the first game. That means you can focus on putting emotion into your playing using […]

Bill Withers – Ain’t No Sunshine (Tab)

Bill Withers – Ain’t No Sunshine (Tab) Following on from Lean on Me with another much-requested Bill Withers song. The song itself is neatly split between the melody and the strumming.

Last of Us 2 Medley: A-ha, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd, New Order (Tab)

Last of Us Part II Medley (Tab) In this month’s Patreon request thread, I got a total of five requests for songs that are featured in The Last of Us 2. So I thought I’d put them all together in a medley. Although Wayfaring Stranger and Take On Me are by far the longest sections. […]

Favourite Ukulele Videos of 2020 So Far

Watch on YouTube It’s the halfway point of the year and time for a roundup of my favourite videos so far. And it’s been a weird year. Which is reflected in the videos which are split between live clips and socially distanced edited videos. If there’s anything great I’ve missed, send me a link in […]

Hank Williams – I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry (Tab)

Hank Williams – I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry (Tab) This tab was requested by Patron Fiona. She asked for a version that, “lets you play up the neck as well as in the lower end where it’s comfortable”. I don’t know if I’ve entirely fulfilled that brief. The melody is contained within an octave […]
