Noel Gallagher is hailed as one of the greatest songwriters of his generation. He knew his way around a riff or two as well. Let’s learn to play one of bests riffs of the 90s 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.

I would advise using your first finger to barre the bottom three strings for opening notes of this riff. It’s going to make the song much simpler to play.

Pluck the C string and slide your finger up to the 4th fret. Then use your middle finger on the 5th fret on the E and keep it there. Use your pinky finger to hit the next two notes. Your middle finger will be ready and placed for that 5th fret. Then use your ring finger for the 6th fret on the C. With a bit of practice, this can become a fluid little lick to play.

For the two chords at the end, you want to strum them
slowly and drag them out. Watch the video of me playing it and that will make sense.
A |-------7---------0--2--|-------7---------0--2--|
E |-----5---7-5-----2--2--|-----5---7-5-----2--2--|
C |-1/4---------6---4--3--|-1/4---------6---4--3--|
G |-----------------------|-----------------------|
