Ukulele Tabs on Tux Guitar

The MIDI specification does not have Ukulele as a sound. As a result Tuxguitar does not show ukulele as an instrument. But, there is always a way to get past that.

1. Choose Nylon String Guitar as the instrument
2. Set Strings to 4
3. Set Offset to 12
4. Now tune as A4 E4 C4 A4

Voila! Its done.

Coorg Vacation

We went to Coorg for a Weekend getaway just before Christmas. Boy! Was it spectacular. We did a homestay with this elderly couple who run a Coffee Plantation. The Estate has fantastic views with a small river just below the cottages.

I have captured some of the natural beauty of the estate on Flickr - but really doesn't do full justice to how beautiful the place is.

As with any home stay, the cottages were spartan but clean. But for one massive spider, everything was just right. The Missus took care of the spider while I cowered in fear. Other than that (and the subsequent tongue lashing) everything was just right!
