Neal Paisley – Gossip (Tab)

Neal Paisley – Gossip (Tab)

Gossip would have to be my favourite ukulele instrumental from last year and, judging by its strong showing in the Ukulele Video of the Year vote, quite a few other people as well. So, of course, I had to have a go at working it out and it’s as much fun to play as it is to listen to.

The tune is based on a A blues progression (A, D7, E7 with occasional bits of F7) with the single notes from with minor pentatonic scale mixed up with plenty of major notes.

It’s a great tune to play around with. I’m working up my own white-boy funk version. Here’s what I’ve jammed together so far:

    Love Neal Paisley! His playing always seems so effortless and smooth. Great job tabbing this out.

    Rennie: Me too.

    Zoe: He is really great. I’ve been having a crack at some of his other stuff. No all my ukuleles are in weird tunings.

    Amazing =D ! Now I don’t have to think about what I should do this evening (and my weekend). Any chance you could also tab “Throw Me In The River” from the same Neal Paisley ? That one’s beautifull and inspiring

    Fraukje: I’m working on Throw Me in the River. I’ve put a VERY early tab of the first few bars in the rag bag.

    hey the link for this in the blues lessons links to Angi by David Graham, not this song

    Jimmy: Thanks very much. I’ll get that fixed.
