Ukulele Utopia

A New Abnormal

The Adults Are Talking, Bad Decisions, At The Door

This video is a straight-up request from the subscribers. A few people have commented recently asking me if I can give it a shot and I thought, why on earth not. I love the first few Strokes albums and my ukulele arrangements of them were very well received. However, in all honesty, The Strokes lost me after the newer albums. I skimmed over them but I just felt like they didn’t jump at me in any way.


I went into listening to this album without that mentality and I must say, I really enjoyed it. It seemed to have to grit of Is This It. I especially love the track “Bad Decisions”.


I’m forever looking for new albums and artists to arrange on the ukulele so please drop me a comment and let me know what you would like to hear!

If you didn’t already know, I spend my free time arranging and learning to play my favorite albums on a ukulele. This isn’t the first time I have done The Strokes, in fact, I did their first 3 albums.


You can learn to play some songs of Is This ItRoom On Fire and First Impressions Of Earth. Check out the videos below too.
