Tame Impala – The Less I Know The Better

The Less I Know The Better

Tame Impala are one of those bands that i could get lost on a desert album with their discography and be completely happy about that. Layers upon layers of ethereal sounds that create this megalodon of sound. Let’s learn to play their massive hit The Less I Know The Better on the ukulele.

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

This arrangement is split into a few different parts. The standout riff is the bass line at the beginning. Pay attention to the slides as that’s what makes this riff what it is. The song then gets built up with some guitar parts and then finished off with a vocal melody.
