Fleet Foxes – White Winter Hymnal

White Winter Hymnal

Does anyone remember Myspace?? I first discovered Fleet Foxes on there. Back when I was living in New Zealand we didn’t have the internet at home so I would hit the internet cafe on the weekend. I would trail through Myspace and find as much new music as I could, download it all and rinse it throughout the week. I immediately fell in love with the harmonies of White Winter Hymnal (much like anyone who’s ever heard it). I managed to pick up the physical CD the following week and was blown away, by the complex vocal arrangements and overall fullness of the record. A deffo in my top 10 albums, one il never tire of.

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

To be really honest with you, what makes this sound so good is the vocal harmonies. So playing this just on a single ukulele might sound kinda weak. However, let’s give it a go anyways. The tab is for the most prominent vocal melody in the build-up. Then we have the main riff running throughout the chorus.
