View Full Version : "Thunder Road"-esque?

A couple years back, someone here posted a link to a youtube clip of Jim Boggia playing Thunder Road on a uke. It is AWESOME. Not only is it an iconic song, but the finger picking arrangement is pretty darn tasty. Needless to say, I obsessed over this and am probably responsible for 20K of the views. :)

I was wondering if there was anything else out there in the same vain. I'm basically looking for good singer/songwriter ukulele arrangements that involve more finger picking than strumming.

Thanks in advance for any leads! :D

There are a couple Springsteen songs on http://www.scorpexuke.com/ukulele-songs.html and
more here http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/bruce_springsteen_ukulele_tabs.htmbut not with the great finger picking arrangements like that one.

Thanks for the video.

Not all finger picking, but here's a version of "Born to Run" that you might enjoy:

This particular video is my favorite Boggia performance and my favorite rendition of this song. I obsessed over it too. You might check out his version of Badfinger's 'Baby Blue' too. But I bet you have already.

Are you looking for performances in a similar vein or tabs?

Performances really (unless there happens to be super accurate tab out there). And while my request wasn't super clear, I'd be interested in all singer/songwriter stuff - it doesn't have to be Bruce. It's kind of funny because I was never really much of a Bruce fan until I heard Jim's version!

Thanks all for the comments so far.

Wait a minute. You mean there are other singer/songwriters besides Bruce???? :)

Have you seen Brook Adams' Beatles medley? Whenever I share the "Thunder Road" link with someone, I invariably include this one too. This performance on a soprano just blows me away.
