One Year of Patreon

I started the Uke Hunt Patreon last February and have been blown away by the amount of support I’ve had. My goal was to get 50 patrons in the first year, so it’s amazing that it’s just past 180 Patreons. I’m massively grateful to all those people and everyone who has been a Patron along […]

Inspector Gadget Theme (Tabs)

Shuki Levy and Haim Saban – Inspector Gadget Theme (Tab) This one is a lot of fun but a real finger-twister. I slowed it down a fair amount from the original and it’s still a challenge with quick runs, big leaps up the fretboard and a couple of triplet strums. There are also some very […]

The Supremes – Where Did Our Love Go (Tabs)

The Supremes – Where Did Our Love Go (Tab) A little tribute I put together for Mary Wilson of The Supremes who died recently. Where Did Our Love Go, written by the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland, was originally intended for Mary Wilson. But Berry Gordy decreed Diana Ross the leader. Which is a bit of a shame […]

Rascal Flatts – Bless the Broken Road (Tab)

Rascal Flatts – Bless the Broken Road (Tab) Bless the Broken Road was originally recorded by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. But became a big hit for Rascal Flatts when they covered it. I discovered the song through RMR's incongruous reworking of it. My arrangement is based on the Rascal Flatts version. Although I was […]

Loudon Wainwright/Vetiver – The Swimming Song (Tab)

Loudon Wainwright – The Swimming Song (Tab) A song from one of my favourite singer-songwriters (and occasional uker). With a hat-tip to Vetiver’s cover. The song is a lot of fun to play. The arrangement is mostly bashing out the chords with a few hammer-ons and single notes thrown in. There are only two sections […]

Agnes Obel – Riverside (Tab)

Agnes Obel – Riverside (Tab) I must admit, I’d never heard of Agnes Obel until it was requested on Patreon. I looked it up expecting to find a niche artist and found the video had 35 million views. No doubt helped by the long list of TV shows it’s appeared in. After the opening twiddle, […]
