This is my medley/cover of the Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires Of The City album. In this post i am sharing the ukulele tabs for Obvious Bicycles, Dianne Young and Young Lion.
This video means I have completed the full set of Vampire Weekend albums on a ukulele. I actually think its the first time I have done that with a band on this channel. What’s interesting is this is my favourite VW album. Lord knows why I left it till last, none the less, it’s here!
Im using a low g for this song but i tried it on a ukulele with a high g and it sounds equally good. The key is to strum the first chord on a down strum and then hit the 7th fret with your thumb too. The 6th and 4th frets after that are merely there just to keep the song moving.
“You torched a Saab like a pile of leaves, I’d gone to find some better wheels”. The opening melody of this track just sounds great. This is the vocal line from verse one all the way up until the chorus.
This is the opening section and we are mimicking the piano parts of the song.
