Blink 182 – I Miss You

I Miss You

I have said it before and I will say it again. Blink-182 don’t get enough credit for their songwriting. When you strip away all the humour and silliness, you are left with some phenomenal compositions, melodies and harmonies. I Miss You is the perfect example of that. Let’s learn to play it on the 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.

A ukulele with a low G is essential for this one. You can try it with a high G but I feel it’s going to lack the depth of the bass notes. For the main acoustic riff, we are switching between palm muting and then finger plucking for the slide. It can be tricky as its a quick change. You want to hold your hand in the same position for both techniques. You can see in the video that I’m barely moving my hand position at all.
