Minecraft – Wet Hands (Tab)

C418 – Wet Hands (Tab)

I had to play Minecraft for hours on end to tab this one out. You get a random piece of music four times a day. So I just had to keep playing and grab my ukulele quickly when Wet Hands came on. There was no other way of doing it.

The music in Minecraft – which you can buy on Bandcamp – fits the game perfectly. Inspiring bouts of loneliness and regret.

Wet Hands works pretty well on the ukulele. I’ve taken out a lot of the right hand piano and replaced it with a few backing strums. The trickiest bit is the harmonics in bar 15. If you want to simplify matters, you can just play these as open strings.

    Beautiful piece, beautifully performed. The perfect soundtrack to a pumpkin slaughter.

    I’m sure you suffered endlessly while playing.

    That’s a nice tab you’ve got there. It’d be a shame if ssssSSSsssomething were to HAPPEN to it.

    Beautiful song. Beautiful uke, what strings do you use? I use aquila but I think they sound quite heavy.

  7. Woodshed November 12th, 2011 6:18 am

    Ivey: Thanks!

    Yukon: Stop with the creeper jokes! I seriously hate those bastards.

    daisy: I’ve got Worths on it at the moment. I generally prefer Worths but I do like Aquilas too.

    Why didn’t you just grab the music out of the minecraft folder? All the songs are there.
    And thanks :)

    I do appreciate that you had NO CHOICE but to play for hours to get the music…despite the *two* links you posted to the mp3.

  10. Woodshed November 13th, 2011 11:11 am

    LiamBeeblebrox: Then what excuse would I have for playing Minecraft for hours?

    Yukon: Glad you understand.

    That Tobuscus video really gets a guy right there.

  12. Woodshed November 15th, 2011 7:53 am

    Derek: It really does. Almost as much as Sugar Cane Wife. I hope he releases an album of these!

  13. L.bo Marie November 25th, 2011 3:32 pm

    oh regrets…. those poor poor pumpkins.

    and… nice tune!

    Lovely *uuurrrgh* tab as per *uuuurggh* usual (if creeper jokes are forbidden, then zombie jokes it shall be.

  15. Woodshed April 6th, 2012 8:34 am

    Theo: Zombies are wimps! Joke away.

  16. Derek Harl April 6th, 2012 5:18 pm

    Unfortunately, I have a sneaking suspicion that Notch is gonna make most evil mobs(Zombies, skeletons, creepers etc.) be able to jump to a block if it’s only one block away. That would make creepers and zombies much more intimidating. *shivers with anticipation of new possible ai in the future*

  17. Woodshed April 7th, 2012 12:09 pm

    Derek: I still haven’t forgiven them for the terrifying zombies-knocking-down-doors thing.

    this is a great song and tab,and i love minecraft so the 2 go hand in hand.

    BUT, im having trouble playing the section where it goes beyond the 13th fret, because our ukulele doesnt have frets that go that high.

    im fairly new to ukulele so i dont know that much,so please make the answer understandable. THANK YOU!!

  19. Woodshed May 16th, 2012 11:01 am

    tomsko888: In bar 21 you can just replace the 15s with 3s. In bar 22 you could replace the 14 with the 11th fret on the C string. It doesn’t sound the same but it sounds right.

    I am searching for a tob of another Minecraft song, like “Swenden” or “Minecraft”.

    Do someone know one ?

  21. K2T July 7th, 2012 8:45 am

    Absolutely beautiful great song to play on a chill day.
    Woodshed do u mind tabbing C418-Sweden?

  22. Woodshed July 9th, 2012 10:34 pm

    K2T: Maybe but I don’t know if this one has been popular enough to do another one.

  23. Tomv September 25th, 2013 5:19 pm

    Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurvelyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, exactly what you need for quiet days inside spending quality time with your uke!

  24. nikolojedison October 11th, 2013 3:19 am

    Great tab! Are you gonna ever release any recordings for download or any other tabs like Swedem or Cat?

  25. Woodshed October 11th, 2013 8:40 am

    nikolojedison: No plans to but I do like the soundtrack a lot so you never know.

  26. Hrnan July 31st, 2015 10:48 pm

    Awesome. Wasnt expecting to find this song cx btw some reggae on this website would be great

  27. Woodshed August 1st, 2015 8:08 pm

    Hrnan: Thanks! And thanks for the suggestion.

  28. Kaelin March 31st, 2016 6:30 am

    This tab is amazing. You did really well to write this from the game
    But i don’t know why you did just download the sound track, I’m sure it’s on iTunes or somewhere.
    But really great tab.

  29. Woodshed March 31st, 2016 6:47 am

    Kaelin: Thanks! I was only joking about that.

  30. Katie October 9th, 2016 12:49 am

    Hello, is there a way to do the note with the 13 fret with a 12 fret ukulele?

  31. Woodshed October 9th, 2016 3:43 pm

    Katie: You could try playing at the 12th fret and bending it up so it’s the same pitch as it would be at the thirteenth fret. Not ideal though.

  32. Katie October 10th, 2016 3:07 am

    Thank you very much! I was tryig to just press down on the string really hard without using a fret but this bending technique is a lot easier lol. Thanks, enjoying website.

  33. Woodshed October 10th, 2016 11:33 am

    Katie: Thanks! Glad it worked.
