Friday Links: Drones, Kevin Bacon and Slytherin Ukers

On Video – More evidence against the folks who say that if everyone played the ukulele the world would be a better place as Scott Morrison picks up the uke and makes a knob of himself. Not the only Slytherin uker. – You can now get your ukulele delivered by drone. – Kevin Bacon sings […]

Joni Mitchell – Both Sides Now (Tabs)

Joni Mitchell – Both Sides Now (Tab) This has to be one of the most beautiful melodies of all time. Which makes for a perfect transition to the uke. The arrangement is based on the sublime acoustic version rather than the not so great later version. Like many of Mitchell’s songs, the guitar part in […]

Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees (Tabs)

Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees (Tab) A song from the more ukeable end of Radiohead’s career (although Dani Joy does a great There, There). The arrangement is pretty straightforward. The trickiest part is the signature Jonny Greenwood ascending line in bars 24-25. Make sure you play the first verse nice and softly so you can […]

The Cranberries – Linger (Tabs)

The Cranberries – Linger (Tab) Following up the Zombie tab with another of The Cranberries’ most loved songs. The intro has a fingerpicking figure switching between Cmaj7 and G that reminds me of Tonight, Tonight. After that, the original has a jarring fade into the main body of the song. I’ve smoothed that out so […]

No Doubt – Don’t Speak (Tabs)

No Doubt – Don’t Speak (Tab) Here’s my take on the No Doubt mega-hit Don’t Speak. The second best song Gwen Stefani has been involved with. I wasn’t sure if this one would work on uke, but I like how mournful it sounds on the instrument. The chords in the verse are a little unusual. […]
