Devo/L’Uke & GUGUG – Girl U Want (Riff Tab)

I smiled quite a lot as well.

This tab is taken from GUGUG and L’Uke’s excellent version of the tune. I’ve tabbed up Gus’s part. Daniel’s playing the same thing but in the rather unusual E tuning (bEG#C#). Finn is playing the chord with an E under the riff.

And, of couse, I couldn’t resist working out the solo as well.

Those chords are also the ones in the, “Look at you with your mouth…” section. So that’s pretty much the whole song.

Part of the Guitar Riffs for Ukulele series.

    Great video and a perfect example of how to mic with one mic.

    Craig: I think they should have had her a little closer. Those Scotch folks really know how to shout.

    PaulC: Happy to do so.

    J-Hob: Definitely!

    Stephen: I should probably like Devo more than I do.
