Survivor – Eye of the Tiger


For this riff, I’ve actually got two guitar parts playing on the one ukulele. One part is the constant C half notes. These are strummed, so make sure you dampen the G string with your thumb on the E and A strings with you fingers when there are no other notes playing.

    Heather: Good luck for next Sunday.

    T: Thanks for pointing it out. I’m sure she knows. She just spends too much time at peepshows.

    Thanks, Wood. I’m getting very nervous. Have a rehearsal in about an hour.

    And yeah, I know the lessons are there. I’m just lazy.

    I found this tab difficult to manage on my own, however very easy if you happen to have a ukulele playing friend its all good :)

    Say this is great! I am ready to learn this today. One question, suppose we want to learn the rest of the song? I would love to perform the whole tune! Any ideas as to where to go?

    ps- I am a beginner, but not a complete beginner

    Hey Woodshed, I’ve been watching a couple of your videos on YouTube. Ive been watching so much of your videos, I bought my own ukulele. But the major problem is I can’t understand the tabs for the ukulele. I was really hoping you can make a video on how to read ukulele tabs or explain it as easy as you possibly can.

    Please HELP Woodshed1

    Mason: I don’t do talking videos but there’s a guide to reading tab here.

    sounds great, but it’s not that easy. when you only want to sing eye of the tiger at the campfire, it’s enough to play it like it stands there, but instead of strumming, you can pull the third and first fret on the a-string and the fourth on the e-string. just for the intro. i like to sing the rest a capella.
