Aloha de Chocobo (Final Fantasy)


Aloha de Chocobo (Tab)


MP3

I’ve been meaning to tab this one out since I did Ukulele de Chocobo. It has a lovely Hawaiian flavoured tune and works very well as a solo ukulele piece (even to those who have never ridden a bright yellow, overside galliforme).

It is possible – and more technically correct – to fingerpick this tune with your thumb on G, index on C, middle on E and ring on A throughout. However, I like to move everything up a string (thumb on C, index on E, middle on A) for bars like two and four.

Buy Final Fantasy music

UPDATE: ISeeDeadPixels has done an excellent video of this arrangement:

DOUBLE UPDDATE: And so has Anna (who played it better than I did):

    Arugh! I spent most of the day trying to record this one. After finally getting it done I realized how much faster I was than the original video. Could of been so much easier if I had only watched the video beforehand.

    Oh well. It was fun anyway.
