Spinal Tap – Sex Farm (Tab)

I think I’ve mentioned before that I hate musicals yet all my favourite films are musicals. And This Is Spinal Tap is definitely up there. Despite their huge impact on ukulele music (obviously been an influence on Jake’s key selection), I could only find two uke Tap covers. So I’m writing up to up that number and in tribute to the last of the great working, family-owned sex farms.



I’m always tempted to break into Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight when I play this bit.



This part uses palm muting (resting the palm of your strumming hand on the string just in front of the bridge so it dampens the sound) which is a bit tricky on a ukulele. An alternative is just to play the g and C strings a bit softer.

And the widdle at the end of the verse is my favourite part:

Verse End



No messing around here, full chords for the chorus part.



An extension of the verse end lick then finish up with an A5 (2450) and a big crotch spray.

    Nice! Tap uke is always good. On a side note, you can’t dust for vomit.
