The Smiths – Panic (Tabs)

The Smiths – Panic (Tab) A version of Panic tribute to Smiths bassist, Andy Rourke. Intro: A short jingle-jangle intro. I originally played it an octave up to accommodate the original.

The B-52’s – Love Shack (Tabs)

The B-52’s – Love Shack (Tab) Love Shack isn’t the most uke-friendly song but it is a ton of fun to play. Intro: Playing the melody using strum blocking i.e. strumming but muting everything but the string that’s playing the melody.

Green Day – Basket Case (Tabs)

Green Day – Basket Case (Tab) Back to my era with a tab of Green Day’s Basket Case. It’s a very simple song.
