If you hadn’t noticed, I made it back from Download safe and sound and only briefly jaloped. AC/DC were, as always, highly entertaining and completely ridiculous. The biggest disappointment was Them Crooked Vultures who only had two decent and made up for it with some interminable noodling. The band I enjoyed most, and I wasn’t expecting this, were Dillinger Escape Plan (as covered by Status Quo). They’re completely off their boxes and bloody brilliant.
Another surprise was in a Slash set that contained Paradise City and Sweet Child… the highlight was the Velvet Revolver song Slither. It’s got a huge riff and should have been in my Guitar Riffs for Ukulele series long ago.
To keep it in the original key, I’m using D-tuning (you could equally use a capo on the 2nd fret).
I have adapted it quite a bit for the uke. If you wanted to play something more faithful to the original you could go with this:
For the chorus, the chords are D – C – G. Or use the shapes for C – Bb – F in C tuning.
