U900 / The Ventures – Sleigh Ride (Tab)

U900 – Sleigh Ride (Tab)

The adorable Japanese duo have put together a Christmas album. But they don’t stray away from Ventures territory with this one.

The main melody on this one is played on a low-G ukulele with a pick. You can get away with using your fingers, but the low-G is a must.

You can buy the CD and DVD on CD Japan.

    Ooh! I already figured this one out and have been working on my own recording of it. I love U900 so much. I bought my first low G string just for this song. It gives the uke a meatier, warmer sound. I’m still a high G fan for most things but it sounds nice on this one.

    Scott: Good luck with your recording.

    todd: Agreed! I’ll have to try and get whoever’s behind them to do an interview.

    Ray: There are links to tabs of a couple of their Ventures covers in the post – don’t know of any others.
