Ukulele Utopia

A Virtual Learning Experience

Debut Album

Club Foot, Reason Is Treason, Test Transmission

Early Kasabian, an intense, raw and brutal album. I like many others have been known to be sat at traffic lights screaming “AH AHAHA AHAHA…I TELL YOU I WANT YOU”. It’s that make kind of album that one minute makes you feel like you’re going to war. Then next minute it’s transporting you to bohemian transience and all that matters is beautiful music.  In this article you will find the Kasabian Ukulele TABs for Club Foot, Reason Is Treason and Test Transmission.

This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favourite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged like The StrokesMuseRadiohead or Kings Of Leon.

Club Foot

This just sounds straight up great on the ukulele. If you have a low G it’s going to sound even better too. The crunching chords combined with the haunting vocal line make for a perfect ukulele arrangement.

 

The easiest way to play this is to strum the chords and then quickly get your hands in place to play the vocal line with your thumb. It’s pretty snappy so it would be wise to use my guide on how to increase your speed on the ukulele to help you play this faster.

Test Transmission

The opening part of this arrangement is mimicking the bass line. You can play it either palm muted or with your thumb. The A Chord is played with a D U D U D D strumming pattern.  The bit that sounds the best is the vocal line. The chord really opens it up so its ideal that you let it ring out as much as possible

Reason Is Treason

The opening E chord needs to be strummed multiple times. The strumming pattern would D D D D D D D UDU. Mostly down strokes with a quick UDU at the end. The rest of the TAB is the vocal line. When playing the 4th fret on the C string, you need to palm mute the strings to give them that dead feeling.
