Donna Summer – Hot Stuff (Tab)

hotstuff ukulele tab


Last in the series of Not Guitar Riffs for Ukulele and it’s a corker. I’m not sure it works on ukulele quite as well as some of the others. But still. Hot stuff.

If you’re feeling adventurous. You could do a prebend on the E string at the third fret and release it for the first two notes of the last bar.

    If you change it about a bit it sounds like Fleet foxes “White Winter Hymnal” too! YAY!

    Turbulent Shrew: Yeah, I was always thinking Fleet Foxes were ripping off Donna Summer.

    I have followed your blog for a while now, it’s fantastic.

    Would you ever do a Fleet Foxes song? They’re so beautiful, the melodic harmonies would sound great on a ukulele, I think.

    I love the uke. My daughter is now picking it up. We hope that she can get to this level. Thanks for sharing.
