Serial Podcast Theme (Tab)

Nick Thorburn – Serial Theme (Tab)

I had to do this tab to celebrate the finale of the first series of Serial. The plinkiness of it was just dying to be uked. To keep it extra-plinky it’s played right up the neck.

    Great, just as I downloaded the final episode to listen to.
    Cheers and Merry Christmas.

    John: Hope you enjoy it. It’s a great episode.

    Cool! Thanks… Do you listen to Slate’s podcasts (there’s even a podcast about Serial!)? They all have little themes and they’d be a great little medley strung together. Probably get you a shout out on one of them too.

    Alec: I sometimes listen to their Political Gabfest. I skipped their Serial podcast though. A podcast about a podcast was a bit too meta for me!

    Their culture gabfest and lexicon valley are worth listening to too. Thanks again for this; can annoy the family over christmas.

    This is perfect to fix my Serial withdrawal symptoms

    Dave: Thanks! Glad I could help. The crazy interviews in The Intercept have got me by.

    That’s a new one for me, I stuck in Baltimore and finally started The Wire.

    This is brilliant! (Though I’d expect nothing less).

    Readie: Thanks very much!

    Thanks a lot for sharing the video and tabs! I’m a beginner player and with following your tab and watching you play I could play it now! I just have a problem with the nines on the C string, especially in this bit:
    I just can’t get this part to sound right. I have a soprano with only 12 frets, could this be why? Is there a way to work around it?

    Sam: Does it sound out of tune? Some ukes can go out of tune up the neck. Particularly the cheap ones.
