I’ve got a list of songs that I’m going to do, but they are all songs that I like, so if you want to hear something else, or challenge me, or even just to see if something will work on ukulele, please post a comment!!
Considering that my site is named after this song, I was having trouble getting it to sound right because of all the 5th chords, but finally here it is!
It’s pretty simple apart from the G5 if you aren’t used to it!
I’ve played the lead part really quietly in the background too, just to show how it fits, but without an extra octave, it’s a bit lame.
Hopefully the chords will help someone though!
This is from the latest Dropkick Murphy’s album, absolutely fantastic song!
I’ve done it in key with the track too, But I haven’t played the trill on the C.
So, after my failure at doing Hysteria, and how much I liked the Hellion being done acoustic, I thought I’d have another go at a muse track!
I started it with distortion, but it sounds way nicer like this! The plucked chords are above the tab too. I should really have played it higher up the neck to make it less tricky to move to notes.
I’ve been getting loads of hits from Google about this track, so I figured its time to show how to play the whole song.
I don’t have audio or video for it yet, but I thought I’d put up the tab I wrote:
Bad Religion released a new album today, and the inauguration of Obama too, so kinda fits nicely. Great song, better on the live album “Tested”
I’ve tagged the end of the live version on the end of this intro, to play the intro normally just ignore the run down. I think its also one fret higher than the recording.
Well, its pretty simple, but everyone, everywhere knows this song! I haven’t played it in the right key, but it works better like this.
This was more of a challenge suggestion than anything else! I’m afraid that I think I failed, but here you go. I stuck an octaver on the bass part to try and get it a bit fuller, although you can’t really hear it on laptop speakers anyway! I also had to tune the C string down to B to help with the intro, and move the whole thing 5 semitones down.
Sorry Metz! – Although I’ll try a different Muse track one day!
Maybe controversial at the moment, but forgetting all that, this song still kicks ass! Not sure I like where the band went after this album, but this one is great!
Its in key (as the song is in drop C) but I’ve used a lot of poetic license disregarding octaves and chords to just leave it as a cool riff.
I did this version with 2 tracks, one doing the bass riff and one doing the backing riff. I’ve worked out a single uke version too, but its pretty tough so I’m still practising it! It will be done soon though!
There is no Tab for this song as I’ll put the single ukulele one up when I do it.
This is the intro of the song The Kids Aren’t Alright by The Offspring.
I had to change the second half of the riff, playing it an octave higher as there aren’t enough notes to go down to. The first note sounds a bit weird, but it is right. I’ve used Bbm, F#, C#, G# as the chords underneath too.
This is the intro of the song The State of Massachusetts by Dropkick Murphys.
I had to change part of the riff, playing a few notes an octave higher as there aren’t enough notes to go down to. You could play the whole thing 3 semitones higher, but it wouldn’t be in key to play along to the track.
