It’s Paul McCartney’s 75th birthday today (or maybe not, if you subscribe to the Paul Is Dead conspiracy rumours!). Here’s Cynthia Lin with her version of Maybe I’m Amazed. If you’ve not viewed her YouTube channel yet, it’s well worth a look & includes some interesting free uke tutorials.

The Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper, with its iconic cover art, is possibly the most influential pop album ever, recorded with great ingenuity on just four-tracks back in 1967. A mix of styles, from rock to vaudeville, psychedelic to Indian, it’s seen as an early concept album.
Unsurprisingly, numerous ukulele versions of its songs abound. Dip into most of our regularly recommended YouTube artists & songbook sites to find some of these well-known tunes lurking. However, for those seeking chords to the entire album, why not try Beatle-lele or Stewart Greenhill? The former site has interesting playing tips (& we use his version of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds); the latter allows for easy transposing or showing in different layouts.
Eat My Uke gives tabs of the main riffs for all of the tunes, played here in a medley:
