Some say this dropped down stuff all sounds the same. Definitely.

Here are two fine examples to prove that  :-) 

 

- Sweet Child o Mine (Guitar Dropped DG) 

- The Entertainer (Guitar Dropped DG)

I uploaded another little booklet on the "UKULELE COMPILATIONS" page.

Maybe all you ABBA fans out there will like it.

The song that broke almost every record you can think of.

Stay down-tuned

- Dancing Queen (Guitar, Drop D)

 

And a request:

- Sign of the Times (Ukulele)

"Three chords good, two chords better"(Fingerstyle Farm)

- Albatross (Guitar Drop D)

Got up quite early today ...

 Two old-school-love songs I love to play but never wrote them down properly

- Jesse (Janis Ian, Guitar)

- Dream a Little Dream of Me (Guitar)

Ok, I assume no feedback is good feedback. Come on out there, show some reaction. This website is not supposed to be a one way road.

I have posted two tiny new pieces, mainly to test the new tab sheet layout.

- Happy Days are here again / Wochenend und Sonnenschein (Ukulele)

- Le Derviche Tourneur (Guitar)

Finally, I took some time to consider various complaints regarding site navigation. I was unhappy with it myself and hope it is better and more convenient now.

 

So what's new?

First, the main pages "Ukulele Tabs" and "Guitar Tabs" now have an overview with the entire content neatly listed in alphabetical order, plus some additional information. New entries will be highlighted in bold characters. From the list you can access the tab sheet subpages directly.

Second, a new sub-page features my Ukulele Compilations. Third, from now on the tab sheets will have a clearer layout. More on that end of the week. 

 

So what remains? 

Still, you can use the "Sitemap" or the "News" pages as a starting point for exploring the wonderful world of Fingerstyle-Rules. 

 

I would love to hear some feedback on those changes.

It is just too hot this summer to try new stuff, so I thought I'd post one my earliest attempt on fingerpicking I can think of.

Drifter's Wife by JJ Cale. And every time I am stuck in learning a new piece, I think back on how I spent endless hours

practicing this rather simple tune and didn't see any progress.

Proudly presenting this years holiday project after a wonderful and very inspiring summer leave on the Portuguese Western Atlantic coast: Songs from The Sea (excluding Yellow Submarine). All made up with my new-red-19 €-take away-permanently-out-of-tune but pool-proof plastic uke.  And since I was in leisure mode, I left out some of the trickier parts. This booklet contains the following songs: 

- Under the Sea

- Sea of Love

- La Mer / Beyond the Sea

- Seaside Rendezvous

- Riptide

- Love is the Seventh Wave

- (Sitting on the) Dock of the Bay

- Sailing

- Octopus’s Garden 

- Raindrops keep falling on my Head (Bonus Track)

Good to hear that not even Depeche Mode can get away without at least some guitar. 

- Personal Jesus (Guitar, Drop G)

Came to my mind after watching „A Fish called Wanda“ for the upteenth time on a rainy sunday afternoon. Great vocal performance of Kevin Kline.

And how is it possible that a country that brings out fantastic songs like this one (and many more) did not qualify for the Football World Cup?

- Volare (Ukulele)

 

April 04, 2018

Upon request, the ukulele version of

- Johnny and Mary (Ukulele)  

 

April 03, 2018 

This is another reason why I prefer instrumental music. These song „lyrics“ are plain bullshit. I have the prettiest wife on earth and

I am the happiest fellow you can imagine.  

- If you wanna be happy (Ukulele)

Finally another one-pager in regular tuning.

- Dancing in the Dark (Guitar) 

 

January 17,2018

You maybe think that I am exaggerating this downtuning thing.

Well, if there is one song that really needs a lower pitch, it is this one.  

- Mmmh (Guitar)
