Heart-Shaped Box is probably my favourite Nirvana song so I guess it made sense that one day the time would come for me to butcher it on the ukulele.
A song that I will always associate with late night Vietnam War TV show Tour Of Duty. Easy enough to work out on the ukulele but I figured it was worth posting for anyone that might want it.
I was looking for a song for Ben (my son) to learn on guitar and I landed on Lose Yourself which is a great riff so I figured I’d convert it to ukulele…
While I’m busy tabbing riffs and songs that should probably never be played on ukulele, how about a bit of Rage Against The Machine? What could be less appropriate to play on the uke (don’t answer that).
I have to confess I love this riff which is played by Slash on Michael Jackson’s song Give In To Me.
This riff from The La’s self titled 1990 album was a massive hit and hugely overused on the Mike Myers movie from 1993 So I Married An Axe Murderer. I also seem to recall Sixpence None The Richer (think Dawson’s Creek) doing a cover of it that was pretty terrible.
While I’m clamping down on playing by ear I’m probably going to be posting various little riffs and stuff on the site that I work out. Today it’s Today (that was an accident) by The Smashing Pumpkins…
