The Black Keys – Lonely Boy

Grammy award-winning The Black Keys know how to write a good riff, there’s no question about it. One of my favourites is Gold On The Ceiling, a thunderous foot-stomper that’s begging to be played. Let’s learn to play it on the ukulele.

The opening riff has a lots of slides. So its worth playing around with it until you get it right. I also find its helpful to palm mute the the first section as it just gives it some more intensity.
