The Strokes – A New Abnormal

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 at the newer albums. I skimmed over them but I just felt like the 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 favourite 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 It, Room On Fire and First Impressions Of Earth. Check out the videos below too. 

Are you interested to know what kind of ukuleles i use to make all my videos?

A simple riff and possibly my favourite of the entire album.


Im pretty sure this is a synth riff but it sounds equally great on a ukulele ha. It’s a tricky rhythm to get the hang of so its worth playing along to the original to get it right.

I hope these tabs were helpful to you. Purchasing the full tabs below is a great way to support me financially. It helps me keep this site running and consistently make content.  Imagine that, I could make a living doing what I love… because of you!
