Jimi Hendrix – Little Wing

Little Wing

This song was my first introduction to Jimi Hendrix and it still remains my favourite song of his. He had a phenomenal technical ability and it becomes so clear when you try to play his songs 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

This arrangement is a straight rip from Aldrine Guerero and the Ukulele Underground website. I remember watching his uke minutes videos way back when I first starting learning to play. He and Hendrix have both inspired me profoundly the more I think about it. Go have a look at his channel for an in-depth lesson on how to play this song. I have tried my best with the tabs but its a very intricate piece. So I advise scrolling down to his video and using that too.
