Arcade Fire – Tunnels

Arcade fire is an incredible band, There is no other way about it. This is a band that shows their talent in abundance, and it’s evident from the very beginning. I first stumbled across them while watching a Reading + Leeds 2007 highlights show on the 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. Let’s learn to play the opener from their sublime Funeral album Neighbourhood #1 ( Tunnels ) on a ukulele.

What Are We Learning To Play?

Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post. 

Ukulele Tabs

I have included the most prominent parts of the song in this arrangement. I found it useful to barre the 5th fret for the majority of this. Then use your remaining fingers to hit all the other notes.
