Deep Purple – Child in Time

I’ll be honest, for about 25 years of my life, the only Deep Purple song I knew was the one that almost every guitar player in the world has heard. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I did a deep dive into their discography and discovered this gem. It’s such an epic musical …

Aerosmith – Walk This Way

Often regarded as one of the greatest riffs of all time and for good reason, it sounds amazing. Not only as its original interpretation on the Toys In The Attic album, but equally when when Run D.M.C covered it in the 80s. It sparked a major comeback for Aerosmith as most of the band had …

Nirvana – All Apologies

Undoubtedly, this is in my top five Nirvana songs. I love their aggressive early stuff, but when they strip it back, they nail it every-time.  Kurt’s coarse and strained voice over that bass line is just perfect to me. Let’s learn to play it on a ukulele. I seem to be saying this often lately, …

Gerry Cinnamon – Lullaby

What I love about Gerry Cinnamon is his ability to mask his very sombre songs with these upbeat and lively instrumentals. It’s a heady mix that makes for some fantastic music. I was torn with what song to play on the ukulele but the intro to Lullaby was begging to be played. What Are We …
