The Beatles – You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away (Tabs)

The Beatles – You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away (Tab) Intro: I did an extended intro based on the verse chords. It’s a little tricky so feel free to adapt it however you like. Or just replace the whole thing with one bar of G like the original. Verse: First time around, this section […]

Slade – Merry Xmas Everybody (Tabs)

Slade – Merry Xmas Everybody (Tab) Here’s a ubiquitous British Christmas stomper. Intro: Starting off in usual fashion with Eb leading into G major. The Bb note (A-string, 1st fret) suggests G minor so the G major chord is a little surprising. Verse: I’m fingerpicking this section the first two times it’s played. The third […]

Harry Styles – As It Was (Tabs)

Harry Styles – As It Was (Tab) I hadn’t heard Harry Styles’s As It Was before it cropped up as a Patreon request and my hopes weren’t high. Turns out it’s a pretty great song. Very catchy with a melancholy edge. Intro: A bit of Take On Me action with this riff. Once the chords […]

R.E.M. – Endgame (Tabs)

R.E.M. – Endgame (Tab) An instrumental track from R.E.M.’s classic Out of Time. Intro: Starting off with thumb and two finger picking. I love the way this riff works with open strings on the uke. So much so, I considered inserting into the song itself. In the end, I saved it for the outro. Verse: […]
