Aha Shake Heartbreak simply solidifies the thoughts among many (myself included) that the Kings Of Leon are the best rock band to have come out of America for a long, long time. It’s chock-full of lively, driving songs, awash with Caleb’s Southern, twangy drawl, Nathan’s snappy and precise drumming and Matthew and Jared’s solid basslines and catchy riffing. The Bucket is a prime example of their fantastic songwriting. Let’s learn to play it 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.
This arrangement is split into two parts, the chords that Caleb is playing and then the lead line that Matthew plays. For all of the chords, you need to make the shape and then use your pinky to hit the extra notes in the section. It can be tricky so I suggest practising without strumming and just getting your hands in the correct place.
