Ukulele Utopia

A Virtual Learning Experience

Nevermind

In Bloom, Come As You Are, Lithium

I’m really not sure how Kurt Cobain would feel about his masterpiece been played in full on a ukulele but I had to do it.

Nirvana was a big middle finger to the music industry exactly when it needed it, goodbye cheesy glam and hello alternative rock. Whilst ‘alternative’ was hardly new, the attention and opportunities Nirvana’s success brought allowed people to reconnect with music that felt more real, intimate and relevant. It was like Punks second coming….Grunge!

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 Bleach or In Utero.
