Hard To Concentrate

One of the standout tracks from the Stadium Arcadium album with its killer bass-line. To be fair though, which RHCP song doesn’t have one of those! Let’s learn to play Hard To Concentrate on the ukulele.

We are recreating Fleas majestic bass-line for this song. Im using a palm muting technique in the video to give me some more control of the length of each note. Check out my guide on how to effectively palm mute.
