Ukulele Utopia

A Virtual Learning Experience

Sams Town

Sams Town, When We Where Young, Bones

This band is just MEGA. There’s no other way about it. They have this knack of writing absolute anthems, songs that you have no choice but to bust out your lungs to them whenever you listen. I was always obsessed with My List when I first heard the album, don’t know what it is but I always found myself drawn to it.

This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favorite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged. Like Hot Fuss or Bloc Party.
