It’s that time again, Radiohead Ukulele style. The Bends full album arranged for the ukulele! Today we are going to learn the Radiohead Ukulele TABs for High And Dry, Just and Street Spirit.
Listening to The Bends is very similar to listening to a Beatles record: if you didn’t know any better you would almost swear this is a greatest hits record or something. Each track is very noteworthy and Radiohead does not falter at all. The idea that Radiohead was a one-hit wonder with Creep was blown out of the water with this masterpiece of an album. I had to play it on the ukulele.
This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favourite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged. Like In Rainbows or OK Computer.

HIGH AND DRY
This is the opening chord sequence and the first line of the lyrics. Im using a low G string but it will work fine with a normal high G.
You want to mute the chords in between the blank spaces. To do this I would hold your left hand across all the strings and strum. Don’t fret the strings just place them on top.
Im not going to lie, this is pretty hard to play without changing the tuning of the song. Your best bet is to make a chord out of it all and then you only need to move your pinky finger around.
All the other tabs for the rest of the album can be found on Gumroad or my Patreon page. Patreon is a cool way for you to join my community and support me by pledging a small monthly donation. Imagine that, I could make a living doing what I love… because of you!
