The White Stripes – Seven Nation Army

7 seven nation army ukulele riff white stripes
Seven Nation Army midi

This tune looks like it’s becoming the Smoke On The Water of the 21st Century. It’s already become the bane of the life of everyone who works in a guitar shop.

I’ve beefed the riff up a little for the ukulele by adding a C-string drone i.e. keeping it ringing through the whole thing.

    I like playing this one with full barre chords, although it’s not in tune with the original it has more beef!

    I played it on the c sting only and it gave it some nice bass.
    Couldn’t really hear the other one when I played them together, but I really suck so it’s probably me.
