    Default Popular riffs.....

    Hi all,

    I'm a stranger to this part of the site, so sorry for just butting in, but I feel I've earned enough to post, as I just learnt Smoke on the Water on the uke! Well pleased with myself to be honest, I was having a little mess around picking, when I started putting it together.

    Anyway, as I'm old and prone to memory failure, I looked up the track title on YT, and saw THIS . Hope you like it.

    oh yea that video! I've seen that vid before and yea its sweet! I saw someone should cover that ALL on uke.
    When life's got you down,
    and you don't hear a sound,
    you feel short and small in a world loud and tall,
    drowned in stress, and its a big mess,
    pick up your uke and play.

    LOL, that would be awesome - anyone who could play "Crazy Train" on soprano would be a god in my book!

    LOL - just found a *certain someone* doing a very respectable uke version on YT

    I dont like that mediafire though, any chance of some tips on the beginning riff and the chords? I'll copy your vid, but dont know tuning, uke, etc.

    Cheers

    Thanks. That was fun. Had to get out a guitar and play through a few of those. One of my middle school students is into classic rock riffs right now. He's going to love this!

    Regards,

    Demons run when a good man goes to war. Night will fall and drown the sun when a good man goes to war. Friendship dies and true love lies. Night will fall and the dark will rise when a good man goes to war. Demons run but count the cost; the battle's won but the child is lost.
