Pearl Jam – Ten

I first discovered pearl when I saw the video for Evenflow on Kerrang back in the day. Kerrang TV for me was the hub of discovering new music as a 12-year-old. This was the early 00s so i couldn’t jump on YouTube or Spotify and dig deep into their discography. I had to do it the hard way, walk to the shop and get my hands on this gem of an album. For a debut album, this really is astonishing considering how every song feels like it has been written by a group of legendary artists. It’s a testament to the album that I bought it when it was 10 years old and 15 years later I’m still discovering new aspects that i love about it. Also, Eddie Vedder is a ukulele hero!

This video is part of my Top 50 Albums on a ukulele project, if you enjoyed it why not check out some other awesome bands from the 90s that I arranged for ukulele. Like Nirvana – Nevermind or Rage Against The Machine. Or Some of Pearl Jams early inspirations like Led Zeppelin or Fleetwood Mac

Oceans

This is another one of those songs that just needs to be felt out. The chords below are the main notes you want to be hitting. Lots of up and down strokes and you need to stretch your pinky to hit that 5th + 7th fret on the first chord. Play the first 4 bars twice.
