The Burning Hell – Last Will and Testament


The Burning Hell – Last Will and Testament (Chords)

If you find yourself in Canada with nothing to do on 11th September (and I’m told that’s the default setting for Canada), you might want to make your way to Edmonton for the Ukulele Fest. The bill includes Uke Hunt favourites Switchblade Death Derby and The Be Arthurs. The bill will be headed by The Burning Hell. That’s only fitting since, Burning Hell frontman, Mathias Kom has declared he wants to be buried naked with a ukulele (a thought Ukulelezo found worryingly arousing). The event is in aid of Ukuleles for Peace, so get there if you can.

Last Will and Testament is played with DGBE tuning, but I’ve written up the chords for GCEA (coz that’s how I roll). To avoid big gaps in the middle section, you might want to imitate the cello part thusly:

And the second lick:

    Are you dissing my country?

    If you’re going to air all my disturbing predilections on this site I’m going to have to be a bit more choosy with what I tell you! Just kidding. All’s fair in ukulele love! Plus I was going to ask you to put up this song for me so I owe you one anyway!

    Heather: I was very careful to pretend I was quoting someone.

    Ukulelezo: It was my duty to warn everyone about you.

    Oh, okay. I’ll pretend not to be offended, then. ;)

    Just met these guys last night at the Fest. They are amazing, and LOVED their set.
    Fantastic stuff.
