Twenty-One Pilots – Lane Boy

Lane Boy

This song is originally played on a plucky sounding synth so it works super well on the ukulele. I’m a huge fan of these and I’m gagging for another album from them. For now though, let’s revisit some of their old work and learn to play Lane Boy on the uke.

What Are We Learning To Play?

Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post.

What’s great about this song is that it only requires one fretting finger to play the entire thing. We will be using our first finger to barre the bottom three strings. The tricky part comes with the strumming hand. You need to assign one finger per string. Use your thumb on the C string, your first finger on the E and your middle finger on the A. This won’t ever change so bear that in mind while learning this song.
