Crazy Train

Crazy Train

This is so so so undeniably one of the top 5 riffs of all time. Not only is the instrumentation is amazing, but it has some really poignant lines too. One of my favourites being “Maybe it’s not too late, To learn how to love and forget how to hate”.

Ukulele Tabs

This song is a right of passage for any would be musician so lets learn to play it on the ukulele. The iconic riff is the second part of these tabs. I recommend utilising your pinky finger to hit all them 5th frets on both the A and the E strings.
