Choan Galvez – Larry’s Waltz in Progress (Tab)

Choan Galvez – Larry’s Waltz in Progress (Tab) Today is a guest tab from, Uke Hunt favourite, Choan Gálvez. This is a piece from Choan’s new series of tabs for waltzes dedicated to ukulele lovers called Waltz in Progress. You can get the rest of the tabs as they come out by joining his Patreon […]

Eagles – Desperado (Tab)

Eagles – Desperado (Tab) I’d somehow never heard Desperado by Eagles before it was suggested by Patreon Trevor. And, not having lived a wild life, the only part of this song I can relate to is your feet getting cold in the winter time. But there are plenty of nice musical twists to keep me […]

Bruno Mars – When I Was Your Man (Tab)

Bruno Mars – When I Was Your Man (Tab) Despite it having over 900 million views on YouTube, I’d never heard this song before it was suggested by Patreon Taras and a surprisingly large number of YouTube commenters. But it’s a catchy song and has some nice elements to it. I particularly like his vocal […]

Gear I Use in 2020

It’s been many years since I did a gear list. So here’s a rundown of the ukes, strings and various other things I use. Ukuleles Main Ukes: For most of my videos I use a tenor Ohana TK-35G. The pointy uke I sometimes use is a tenor KoAloha Sceptre. Practice Uke: I’ve been enjoying using […]

Tracy Chapman – Fast Car (Tabs)

Tracy Chapman – Fast Car (Tabs) Considering what a massive hit this was, it’s not structured at all like a pop song. The verses are a jumble of words and the chorus doesn’t hit until two minutes into the song. But the guitar riff and the “You’ve got a fast car” refrain are both great […]

Friday Links: TV Screen Ukes, Ultraman, Ties for Straps

Covid rules force schools to ditch recorders in favour of ukuleles as it turns out kids sharing spit isn’t the best for hygiene. On Video – Electronicos Fantasticos jam on their ukuleles made of TV screens. – Heart transplant recipient played ukulele, sang a duet before surgery – Billie Eilish's ukelele goes up for sale […]

Amazing Grace (Tab)

Amazing Grace (Tab) I was inspired to take on this one after watching Andrea Bocelli at Easter near the start of the lockdown. There are two run-throughs of the melody here. The first uses basic chords (although sometimes in inversions you might not be familiar with). The second uses jazzier chords that are sometimes a […]

The Noveltones – Left Bank Two (Vision On Theme)(Tab)

The Noveltones – Left Bank Two (Tab) You might might not recognise the name of this but the tune is best known to Brits my age as the Vision On/Take Hart gallery theme. And to less grey people might recognise it as the theme to the intro level of LittleBigPlanet. This arrangement is heavily focussed […]
