My Band

My Band

I really do miss those funky in your face hip hop beats from the late 90s and early 00s. Eminem and Dr Dre pretty much laid the blueprint for it. However, it was Eminem alone that produced this one. Let’s learn to play My Band by D12 on the ukulele

What Are We Learning To Play?

These tabs for from this little arrangement I made for my Tik Tok account. By the end of this post, you will be able to play everything in this video.

This arrangement is split into three parts. Firstly we are recreating the bass line. I found if you palm mute while playing it adds a little more texture. The chords are pretty straightforward after that.

Lastly, we have the main vocal line. It helps to barre the 9th fret on the bottom two strings. Then you can use your other fingers to hit the frets easily. The last note has a gnarly bend at the end (see video).
