View Full Version : Herb Jr. Version

12-23-2007, 02:27 PM
Europa has been somewhat of a hot topic around here recently so I decided to transcribe Herb Jr's version. This one is more suited to playing with another player as it consists of the melody and solos played over top the chords. I've used a synth sound for the background chords.

I'm also working on a solo version similar to the demo video that I will post when it's completed.

Tabs can be found at Dominator Ukulele Tabs in the sig below.
Enjoy your Christmas Holiday.

Since this book is like absolutly not to get in the US and Europa I might scan that Page if there is an E-Mail request.

Actually, that video isn't the original version. Herb recorded the original version on his Ukulele Breeze CD and that is the version my transcription is meant to represent. The video is a live version of the song with Daniel Ho and it is quite different in many respects than the recorded version I worked from. Cool video that offers another really neat perspective none the less. I had seen that video a while back but forgot about it. Thanks for pointing it out.

Oh I didn't know that. That was the only version of europa I knew from Otha Jr..
Thanks for the correction.
