Led Zeppelin – Kashmir

Interestingly, this song has nothing to do with Kashmir in India at all. Led Zep frontman Robert Plant wrote it while driving on what he described as a “never ending road” in Morocco. Imagine that, back when rockstars didn’t have smart phones to indulge them on these long tour journeys. 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. 

Ukulele Tabs

This is a great song to try on the uke as its quite an unconventional song to play. Use your first finger on the 2nd fret of the C string and keep it there throughout the riff. We are then using our pinky to hit all the notes on the E string. It’s as simple as just sliding it up the neck for each note change.
