The master of chilled hip-hop, sadly taken away from us 8 years ago. Here’s my tribute to him and his blissful beats. This is possibly one of my favourite Nujabes instrumentals. He and J-Dilla have this magical way of taking me away from the world with their music. A true creativity that comes from a place deeper than themselves. Today we are learning to play the Nujabes – Feather Ukulele TABs.
This is a cover I uploaded a couple of years ago, it seems to be getting some traction on YouTube so I thought it would be wise to share the ukulele tabs so everyone else can learn to play some Nujabes.
The riff its self is pretty to play. It just requires your fingers to be nippy as they fly up and down the fretboard. You are started on a chord and then the rest is picked. I would advise using your 1st and 2nd fingers for the chord and then use your pinky finger to hit the 11th fret on the A string. It’s then just a case of picking each note after that.
This part of the song is actually a sample that Nujabes used from Yusef LATEEFs Love Theme from the Robe. You can check it out below.

If you are having difficulty playing this song at a fast speed I would highly recommend checking out my guide on how to increase your speed on the ukulele. Its based on using an increasing metronome so you start really slow and build your speed over time. You will be flying up and down the fretboard in no time!
