Lil Uzi Vert – XO Tour Llif3

XO Tour Llif3

A song about heartbreak over a killer instrumental. Lil Uzi captured a lot of peoples ears in 2017 when he released this song. It’s easy to see why as the hook is an absolute earworm. Let’s learn to play XO TOUR Llif3 on the ukulele.

What Are We Learning To Play?

The tabs are from a little arrangement I made for my Tik Tok account recently. Check it out below and keep scrolling to learn it yourself.

Ukulele Tabs

This is one of those songs where it’s tricky to play as each part on its own doesn’t really mean much. However, when you combine it all together, you get one of the best beats of 2017. If you have a loop pedal yourself, or you some ukulele friends. This is a great song to play.

It’s important to note that I’m using a low G for this one. That means my highest string is actually my lowest so I get deeper notes than usual. Below are the three loops that make the song.

A |-----9-------------12-------|---6/9----4/7----2/5----1/4--|
E |----------------------------|-----------------------------|
C |---6-------6-----9------9---|-6------4------2------1------|
G |-7-------7-----11-----11----|-----------------------------|

A |---------------------------------------------------------------|
E |-----2---2-----------2---2-----------2---2---------2-5---5-2---|
C |---2-------2-------2-------2-------2-------2-----------------2-|
G |-4-----------4---4-----------4---4-----------4---4-------------|

Once you have the beat down, it’s time to layer the vocals on top of it. I played this really high up the fretboard as I didn’t want it to get muddled up with the other parts. This way, the high notes really punch through.

A |-12-10-9-----------9---10-9----12-10-9-----------9---10-9-----------|
E |----------12-10-12----------------------12-10-12-------------10--12-|
C |--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G |--------------------------------------------------------------------|

A |-12-10-9-----------9---10-9-----------12-10-9--------------9---|
E |----------12-10-12-------------10--12---------12-10-12---------|
C |---------------------------------------------------------------|
G |---------------------------------------------------------------|

A |-9--9-9-10-9----9--9-9-10-9-----9--9-9-10-9-----9--9-9-10-9----|
