Liverpool legends The La’s wrote one of the greatest songs of the 90s. Lyrically its beautiful, but the the opening riff is something else. Super iconic and recognisable. Let’s learn to play it 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.
This riff is a pretty straight forward fingerpicking pattern. You want to get your fingers prepared at the start to make it much easier.
Place your first finger on the 2nd fret of the C string. Ring finger on the 3rd fret of the E string. Lastly, have your middle finger on the 2nd fret of the E. That means, you will just need to lift off your ring finger when it comes to playing that note.
