Sera Was Never (Dragon Age Inquisition)(Tab)

Raney Shockne – Sera Was Never (Tab)

I do enjoy a good fake-Celtic game tune like Gwent Flute Song from Witcher 3. So when I got a request for this tune I couldn’t resist. I might make it a trilogy and do the Hearthstone theme at some point. Until then I’ll keep brushing up on actual Celtic tunes.

For my version I’ve kept the chords and melody separate. The melody is a good opportunity to use a pick to get a mandolin-ish tone. But I’m using my fingers mostly alternating picking with index and middle fingers.

Here’s a backing track for you to play along with. There’s one bar of Am to count you in.

Backing track MP3

For the backing strumming I’m using a touch strum then a full strum. There’s a full guide to touch strums in How to Play Ukulele Strums but the basics is you lightly hit just the g- and C-strings with your strum.

    Low G or high G? I’ve been trying this and the open String on G sounds off. Replacement for the 0 for low G tuning? Thanks so much

    Jo: It’s high-g. If you can’t get it to work for you, you can replace it with C-string, 7th fret. Or E-string, 3rd fret. But they might be a bit tricky to reach.

Got something to say?
