IV

black dog, rock n roll

Time to take on the mighty Led Zeppelin 4. I remember watching Wayne’s world as a kid and been so curious as to why Wayne’s not allowed to play “Stairway” in the guitar shop. I was like, what the fudge is stairway anyways? This was before the internet, so I asked around and soon got my answer; “The greatest song ever” they said, “How do you not know??” they exclaimed. I got hold of the album that Stairway had come from and was blown away.

It was a bluesy, folk, psychedelic and overwhelming experience like no other. What had I been missing? It firmly became an album of my youth and started me on a journey into the realm of classic blues-rock. Of course, I needed to tackle this on a ukulele!

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 Jimi Hendrix or Fleetwood Mac.
