Loyle Carner – Ottolenghi

Ottolenghi

Loyle is one of my favourite rappers in the UK. His meaningful lyrically content is a nice change from all the hard drill bars at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of drill music. It’s just good to switch it up. His choice of beats for his songs are mouth-watering. Let’s learn to play Ottolenghi 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.

I’m using a low G in the video above but don’t let that worry you too much. I tried playing it with a high G and the intro sounds just as good. You may struggle when it comes to playing the third section but you can always play it an octave higher. 

There’s nothing too taxing to play here. The song has a really laid back vibe so you won’t need to be flying up and down the fretboard.
