More details coming out about Eddie Vedder’s ukulele album. The latest is that it’s going to be called Ukulele Songs and will be out on the 30th May. It’ll feature a duet with Glen Hansard and a version of Tonight You Belong to Me with Cat Power. And songs will include Goodbye, Can’t Keep and the first single from it: Longing to Belong.
Don’t be surprised if I end up tabbing them all. Pearl Jam were 1/3 of the reason I got into music as a kid.
The main strum is all downs. But you don’t hit every string, every strum. You start by hitting E and A, then g and C twice. Repeat that. Then EA once and gC once.
Later in the song he adds a d-u-d-u to it.
This time around I’m experimenting with including the twiddly bits in the pdf.
First main twiddly bit is the solo. It’s not too tricky and you can follow the chord shapes (if your eyesight is good) or the tab. Feel free to vary it up. He does.
