The Hives – Walk Idiot Walk

Walk Idiot Walk

Can you believe The Hives were form in 1989? The band are as old as me which is mad to think. Their “big break” came 10 years later though when they released their debut album and breakout single Hate To Say I Told You So. They infiltrated the UK music scene and have gone on to become one of the most acclaimed live acts around. Today we are learning to play the monster hit Walk Idiot Walk from their 2nd album.

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 most recognisable part of the song is the chord run down. If you are struggling to play the full chords you can work your way up from the bottom string until you get comfortable playing all 3 notes at the same time.
