Soldier Side

Soldier Side

One of my fondest memories as a teenager was larking about in the pub that my mates parents ran after school. They would close it for an a few hours and we could be allowed to watch sky tv on the big screen, play pool and drink loads of coke. That was when i first heard System Of A Down. The video for Chop Suey came on the tv. I was immediately switched on to them and i have loved them ever since.

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

I think Soldier Side works so well on the ukulele. We can get it sound pretty much spot on without needed to detune the strings or anything. Theres a few techniques going on here, we are fingerpicking aswell as chucking in a few hammer-ons and pull offs. You will find it much easier to play by forming chords and picking out the notes.
