The Allman Brothers – Jessica

Jessica Allman Brothers Top Gear ukulele tab

Jessica midi

On Monday, I’ll be kicking off numbers 20 to 11 in my series of guitar riffs for the ukulele. I’d tabbed this out for inclusion but decided it wasn’t really a riff. It is, however, fun to play while wearing too much denim and a perm.

British readers might recognise this as the theme tune to the most morally bankrupt show on TV, Top Gear.

    Here’s a follow to a previous comment I made about how the ukulele is creeping into 6-string territory. I found this album that is “semi-modern-rock” Bixby. I really enjoyed their album. The have six songs on their album where I think I hear ukulele either as an intro, fingerpicking in the background or throughout the song. Check out tracks (1) Icarus, (7) Vanessa, (12) The Same, (14) Westbound to heaven. Also check out tracks (5) and (8). The ukulele player is Adam Alika Fell.

    Wow… a perfet ending to a day… make my daily visit to your site… and find my favourite guitar riff of all time transcribed for the ukle (I’d tried to do that a few times…. never worked perfectly.)

    Now to go learn it…

    …though you’ve got a point… it isn’t exactly a riff… how about, just ‘part’?

    Is the 05450 at the end right because when I play it is sounds off, or is it just my uke

    Liquid_Wind: I’m not sure what you’re referring to with the “05450 at the end”. I don’t see anything like that.

    Sorry about the vagueness I’m referring to the end of measure 2.
