Deep Purple – Child in Time

I’ll be honest, for about 25 years of my life, the only Deep Purple song I knew was the one that almost every guitar player in the world has heard. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I did a deep dive into their discography and discovered this gem. It’s such an epic musical achievement. I highly suggest putting on some headphones, laying down and listening to this song on full. For now though, let’s learn to play the intro organ section on a ukulele.

If you are attempting to play this, I applaud you already. It’s a fantastic song to play with a ukulele partner so I have included the chords/riff that is running throughout. This is one of those that’s just going to take a while to fully get the grip of it. As we get further into the piece, it becomes a lot more intricate and nippy so you just need to persevere.
