Even Flow

Even Flow

For a debut album, Ten really is astonishing. It feels like every song has been written by a group of legendary artists. It’s a testament to the album that I bought it when it was 10 years old. Still, 15 years later, I’m still discovering new aspects that I love about it. Even Flow is considered the quintessential Pearl Jam song. Even though it gets played like mad on radio and playlists, the nuts and bolts of it are just amazing.

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

The main riff from this song is rather nippy. To help us have a bit more control, I suggest you palm mute the strings near the bridge. It allows to play the notes with a quick stab and stops them from ringing out longer than they need to.
