Gogol Bordello – Not A Crime

Gogol Bordello Not A Crime ukulele tab
Not A Crime Midi

I’m very taken with this song and Gogol Bordello in general. The riff was originally an Italian folk tune called Tromba degli Zingari.

I play this riff with the A string ringing throughout to give it a bit more weight on the uke. I use my thumb to play the melody notes and my ring finger to play the continuous A note.

Buy Gypsy Punks
