Ukulele Utopia

A Virtual Learning Experience

Funeral

neighbourhood #1 (tunnels), wake up, rebellion (lies)

Arcade fire is an incredible band, There is no other way about it. This is a band that shows talent in abundance, and its evident from the very beginning. I first stumbled across them while watching a Reading + Leeds 2007 highlights show on BBC red button. I was in awe, the sun was setting, the sky was red and the music was magical.  I had their album downloading straight away. Very rarely does a band’s live show and records match so well but these guys are the real deal.

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 The Strokes, Fleet Foxes or Tame Impala.
