    Default St James Infirmary

    There are some fabulous versions of this song on youtube. Has anyone found an on-line tutorial for this tune? cheers

    Simple song, but there are many variants around.

    I play it:
    Dm-A7 x 2
    Bb - F- A7
    Dm -A7 x 2

    Just finishing a new group songbook with this song in it. Will post the link in a few days. I do a medley with this and Sixteen Tons, too.

    Well, not a tutorial ...
    ... but a fully tabbed down easy fingerstyle version of it, incl. some variations.

    It is on my website (see below), filed under Ukulele Tabs.

    Check it out and have fun.

    Wow - what an excellent resource! Thanks - I will certainly give that a crack along with several others you have kindly put on your site. Cheers

    That's a great site Phrunk, thank you.
    I can offer my arrangement with some poorly written tabs. It includes the intro from Hugh Laurie's version, which you may find useful. I posted handwritten tabs further down the thread.

    hey, great show.

    this kind of changed my point of view on your generation.
    I used to think - until five minutes ago - that this kind of music is only enjoyed by old farts like me.

    Now I know better. thanks a lot.

    Here is a video posted the other day here on UU. Looks so simple especially the prelude. I should get this down in about 2 to 3 years....awesome!

    Recovering an old post - I'm starting to focus on this and after mucking around with the tempo I'm just about there I think. Question though - there are a couple of notes '12' in a box. What does this represent? I can't work out if it is a 'twelve' or a one and two - an no idea what the box means. cheers
