Christmas Tabs and Chords 2022

If you’re looking to entertain over the festive season, it’s time to start polishing up your holiday tunes and learning a few new ones. Here’s a rundown of everything Christmassy and seasonal on the site. Christmas eBooks I’ve written 3 collections of easy Christmas tabs: How to Play Christmas Ukulele, Christmas Ukulele 2 and Christmas […]

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: […]

The Jesus and Mary Chain – Sometimes Always (Tabs)

The Jesus and Mary Chain – Sometimes Always (Tab) Tabbing a Mazzy Star song inspired to me to bash together this Hope Sandoval featuring Jesus and Mary Chain song. And “bash” is an accurate description. It’s a route 1 arrangement with just strumming and melody. Links Buy the original More 90s tabs and chords Uke […]

The Smashing Pumpkins – 1979 (Tabs)

The Smashing Pumpkins – 1979 (Tab) 1979 is the Smumpkins’s biggest hit but was almost cut from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Which is confusing as that album could do with a dozen songs cutting but not this one. This arrangement is mercifully easy after the nightmare of Send Me on My Way. This […]

Rusted Root – Send Me on My Way (Tabs)

Rusted Root – Send Me on My Way (Tab) Rusted Root’s Send Me on My Way was a bit of a flop when it was first released. But it’s jaunty nature and semi-comprehensible lyrics have given it success in soundtracks to Ice Age, Matilda and that millipede. There are a lot of rapid notes to […]
