Seven Movies About Music You Haven’t Seen

Over lockdown, I got tired of the usual Netflix fare and embarked on watching a wider variety of movies including, horror of horrors, movies with subtitles. And I found a bunch of great stuff. Here’s a round-up of films about music and musicians I enjoyed (order from weirdest to least weird) that you might not […]

Portishead – Glory Box (Tabs)

Portishead – Glory Box (Tab) Today’s tab is the 90s trip-hop classic Portishead’s Glory Box. The song is built around a sample of Ike’s Rap by Isaac Hayes (the same sample used in Tricky’s Hell is Round the Corner). So the whole song is on an Em chord (Ebm in the original) with descending bass […]

The Beatles – Till There Was You (Tabs)

The Beatles/Meredith Wilson – Till There Was You (Tab) Till There Was You was originally recorded by Meredith Wilson. But, of course, is much better known by The Beatles’ cover. This arrangement is heavily based on The Beatles’ version but is closer to the tempo of the original. I’ve taken a few liberties including adding […]

Sufjan Stevens – Casimir Pulaski Day (Tabs)

Sufjan Stevens – Casimir Pulaski Day (Tab) Here’s my take on, part-time uker and full time Belieber, Sufjan Stevens’s heartbreaking Casimir Pulaski Day. I also love Mikaela Davis’s harp cover, so a bit of that has snuck into the arrangement too. The song gets much of its power from being blunt and straightforward. So I’ve […]

Guns N’ Roses – Patience (Tabs)

Guns N’ Roses – Patience (Tab) While not quite in the league of November Rain, Guns N’ Roses’ acoustic lighter-swayer Patience is still a bit of an epic. So for this arrangement I’ve trimmed down the intro and outro and skipped the repeat of the verse and chorus. The intro follows Axl’s whistling for the […]
