This has been a personal project of mine on and off since this spring. I've finally come up with ukulele-friendly tabs for "Sigh No More, Ladies" from Kenneth Branagh's excellent Much Ado About Nothing. The only tabs I'd been able to find were for guitar, but after some tooling around, I've come up with the following. I think it sounds pretty good!

Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more / Men were deceivers ever... )

You can download a PDF here; sorry the above isn't text-only, but the formatting wasn't holding in terms of spacing out the lyrics with the notes. If anyone wants the plain text (RTF), drop me a line. If the formatting isn't making sense either, let me know. Happy Monday, gang!

It was a cover of "To be or not to be" that convinced me to take up the ukulele, so you can only imagine how delighted I was to find [ profile] dont-take-it-seriously's Hamlet ukulele photoshoot. Of all the times not to be able to lay hands on a skull, though...

Hamlet ukulele,

The rest of it is pretty cute too. Happy Monday, everyone!

Three, actually: French horn, Shakespeare and ukuleles. Four, if you like oddball British sketch comedy.

It's been my project this weekend to figure out how I can play "Sigh No More, Ladies" from Kenneth Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing (watch it here; it's lovely). Unfortunately, the only easily accessible tabs I've found have been guitar-only.

The internet is good to us, though; Missy has us covered with some tips (and illustrations) for converting guitar tabs to ukulele-useful tabs. I'm also contemplating looking into a capo, but that might just be me enjoying having stuff (the thing that would really help me out would be this thong, so that should come first).

I'm in transit at the moment, but if I manage to come up with some satisfactory results, I'll definitely share. Do you have any recent triumphs (or tribulations!) you want to talk about? Happy Monday, all!

Let's get this party started! I'm Esther, your friendly mod, and I have been playing ukulele for, oh, just under a month. I have a Lanikai pineapple soprano and love it -- when I decided, kind of spur of the moment, that I wanted this in my life, the sound on the pineapple uke just blew me out of the water.

I'm 27, I live in Chicago and I have played piano and some wind instruments before, but never a string. Courtney Welbon's cover of the "To be or not to be" soliloquy from Hamlet was the thing that tipped me over. So far it's looking like a fairly excellent choice.

If this is as slow a week at work as I think it'll be, hopefully I'll be able to put together some links and resources for this place pretty soon. But yes, pop on by and say hello -- I'm very much looking forward to seeing who else enjoys ukes on Dreamwidth!
