Dillinger Escape Plan – Milk Lizard (Riff) (Tab)

Dillinger Escape Plan and the sort of band I’d usually be into but I caught them at Donington and they BLEW. MY. MIND. They tight, wild and batshit insane.

Milk Lizard is one of their more straightforward songs: mostly in 4/4 time, only occasional shifts in tempo and it has a singalong chorus. Obviously one for the laydees.

The riff moves to the uke pretty well – even keeping it in the same key. If you want to make it easier to play, you can drop the notes on the g-string without losing anything important. And you can drop the little run in bar 7 and keep playing the riff if you don’t feel like some pointless showing off.

    Completely unrelated to this… but you know how you sometimes like to link to uke photos? Here’s one you may miss (from one of my contacts on flickr):


    (Incidentally, am I getting insufferably twee in my old age? I automatically turned down the sound before clicking on your batshit insane link…)

    deemikay: Thanks for the link. I shall pass it on to my good friend who has an interest in these matters.

    I’m glad I could be of some use to someone.

    (Incidentally, she does play and she was in a similar state of dress in recent Flaming Lips video. While riding a bike. Fancy.)

    PS I love you and this site even more for Groove is in the Heart.

    Al, Al, al, al.

    Dillinger?? You’re AMAZING! You could not possibly get any more cool, though It seems you’re pretty set for proving me wrong.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I love you.

    This is pretty sick! It’s really great of you to widen the uke horizon with some Dillinger!

    I can honestly say I didn’t expect to see a Dillinger tab for the ukulele, great work!
