Pantera – I’m Broken

I'm Broken

Another song that I discovered from music television back in the day. Most of the music to this song was written while Pantera was hungover during a soundcheck. The lyrics were later added in the studio and they are about lead singer Phil Anselmo’s chronic back pain.

What Are We Learning To Play?

Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post. 

Ukulele Tabs

We are playing lots of hammer-ons here so its worth recapping on what they are. Performing a ukulele hammer-on involves plucking one note, then playing the next note without plucking again. It increases your speed when playing songs. That’s because it allows you to get from one note to the next without using your plucking hand. When played correctly, it can elevate your ukulele playing to the next level.
