Klaxons – Golden Skans


Klaxons – Golden Skans (Chords)

New rave and ukulele: go together like a horse and marriage. I’m a firm believer that if a song has chords and a strong melody it’ll work on the ukulele. Golden Skans is a case in point.

You can even play the ‘ooo eee ooo eee ooo eee ooo ee ooooh ahhhh’ part:

    hey im really impressed by the work you do to help our minority get better (Us ukulelist =])

    i really love this song and i hope i can learn it, but i just dont get the 3×5 thing..does that mean i pluck the 1st string 3rd fret then slide to the 5th fret, then repeat?

    thanks so much and keep up the brilliant job you doing!!!

    Thanks, hud.

    Yes, that’s exactly what it means.

    I’m doing a series of posts on how to read ukulele tab at the moment. The second one should be up today.

    Hey Woodshed,
    Don’t suppose you could explain the lines etc on the 3/5 or send me a link to somewhere i can? It would be very much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Mcnilly: Yup, they’re slides. More info here if you need it.

    its not “3×5″ thats where the slide crosses the sheet music line… that is if thats what you’re confused about, that is. but yes, your assumption is correct, you pluck on 3 slide to 5.
    I just got my lanikai concert uke for late christmas gift and still working out my own kinks. granted, I do have a bit of background with music in general.
    Cheers!

    Cheers to believing almost every song is possible on the uke! Also cheers to Golden Skans, such a wonderful song :) Now if their was only a simpler way to Uke-ify every song I liked ;P
