Went to our local uke jam last night, practiced for 30 minutes this morning before work and now I'm listing to Rite of Spring. My mind is beginning to mash the sounds.

Any tabs or performances of this on Uke? :eek: A person could be quite creative and liberal with a rendition on our little friend.

There's a piano duo of it by Stravinsky himself. I would think that would be a good starting point, as it gives a reduction which you can then further reduce. I expect the main thing would simply be that it would be hard to play, to get the right sense of dynamic and rhythm.

Would love to hear an attempt!
