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 […]

Friday Links: Congressional Medals and Ukulele Clothes

Sam and Fred Kamaka have received Congressional gold medals. (Via Ukulelia.) James Hill has launched a ukulele clothing brand. So far, no oversized Hawaiian shirts or Formby false teeth. The fantastic Paula Fuga has a new album out including features from Jack Johnson and Ben Harper: Rain on Sunday. I backed this on Kickstarter way […]

Travis – Why Does It Always Rain on Me? (Tabs)

Travis – Why Does It Always Rain on Me? (Tab) It’s always fascinating to see how bands deal with the death of musical fads and Travis are a prime example of it. Their debut album Good Feeling was full of Oasis-y rockers about good times and picking up girls. Which would have flown off the […]

R.E.M. – Losing My Religion (Tabs)

R.E.M. – Losing My Religion (Tab) The opening riff for REM’s Losing My Religion is a blast to play and fits nicely on the uke. I particularly like the riff on the G chord leading into the verse which I play campanella style. At first, I was playing the chords with strums. But I switched […]

Uke Hunt is 14

Uke Hunt turned 14 in May (I would have mentioned it then but time has become a flat circle and I still think it’s March). According to WebMD a 14 year olds will experience, “mood swings.. and may be embarrassed by you.” Here’s a round-up of my favourite tabs and the goings-on of the last […]

Louis Armstrong/Sam Cooke – What a Wonderful World/Wonderful World (Tab)

Louis Armstrong/Sam Cooke – What a Wonderful World/Wonderful World (Tab) A pairing of two almost identically titled songs: Sam Cooke’s Wonderful World and Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World. One because of a Patreon request and the other in tribute to Maple the guitar dog. The arrangement starts with the beautiful melody of What a […]
