Uke Geeks is a set of free ukulele song editing tools that convert “plain text” lyrics and chord names into easy-to-read songsheets with clear chord diagrams (“fingering charts”) and provides you lots of customization options. So, rather than reading this boring description why not test drive the editor?
Holy Cow, this IS what you have always dreamed of. See for yourself.
Goodness gracious me, Jim Carey has updated his 2000+ song songbook for ukulele. You can get it from his amazing website here in pdf form.
(Though if you are online it is worth looking at them on his website because you can transpose any song into any key, change the chord diagrams if you are left-handed, change what instrument you are using etc. It’s a real piece of work.)
Friends. Barbarians. Uke Players. Residents of Burrowbridge. We has a gig.
TUSC vs Burrowbridge vs Somerset Day
Saturday 12th May 2018
Burrowbridge Coronation Hall, West Yeo Road, Burrowbridge, Bridgwater TA7 0RH
8pm for an 8.45 start or tharabouts
On Saturday 12th May 2018, Somerset Day, in that there (SRo) Burrowbridge, will climax to the moans, groans and plucked g-strings of the World FamousTM TUSC.
Although there a great many things going on that weekend none will be greater or more sweetly smelling than TUSC in uproarious feverishness climaxing Somerset Day.
The organisers want us to be the climax of festivities in Burrowbridge so those that can will. Join us dear uke player, you are Burrowbridge’s only hope…May the 4th be with you.
Gig book yer. (Updated version 05/05/18))
Woo-hoo! Thanks to possibly some initial miscommunication, then my inability to leave a nagging issue alone without constantly worrying at it, and then Tony-Wrangler-Of-The-Tech kindly patching my personal shortcomings, Book Zero now has a contents page you can click to jump straight to the song you want, and if your PDF reader shows bookmarks – which it does – all the songs show up there too.
It’s great. This is version 7. The cover has blue writing. If yours is different then it won’t support this sorcery.
Update your Book Zero here.
Iteration Six of the nebulous Book Zero is now on the Songbooks page.
What’s new? Bill Maynard died. Oh, and there are now bookmarks embedded in the document (though not from the contents page cos I can’t work out how to do that), and Say A Little Prayer is included.
So I’m on my phone and on a train and half asleep. So this may fail completely.
However… The Oake Gig Book is HERE!
Tony has been working absurdly hard and put all our songs individually into one huge zip file.
You can get it here, my Darlings, in Zipped format.
Or you can find it here in its unzipped glory.
You wait for ages and then two come along at once.
Here be’st, for your delectation, BOOK 13! The Songs From Women Songbook.
Plus! A new and improved index! “How improved?” you cry… Well… Now, you see, it contains Book 13 as well. And it is available for a limited time only* in commemorative Ladies Pink.
Click here to get them. Click here to not get them.

It’s magnificent. It’s not to be sniffed at. Or sniffed generally.
