Golden Skans

Golden Skans

These guys arrived to the music scene at just the right time for me. I had freshly turned 18 so going out on a Saturday night with my mates was my only concern. This tune would be rinsed like mad in the clubs and I didn’t mind one bit. Let’s learn to play Golden Skans by The Klaxons on the ukulele.

Ukulele Tabs

The opening chords are super simple and just need one strum per measure. Then iconic part of the song is the vocal motif that acts as the chorus. I could call it a beginner riff as it’s easy enough to play.

A |-5--0--5--0--|-----------5-3-5---------|
