Tab: Good Lover by Anne Janelle

So Long at the Fair

Anne’s solo album, “So Long at the Fair” is a wander through mellow summer days and bright smiles.

What’s a cello player doing on here?! Well, Anne Janelle writes fantastic songs and one of them happens to be recreated live with ‘ukulele playing a heavy supporting role.

Anne holds good company. Her ‘ukulele player is James Hill. True to form, he did a great job copping Jeff Torbert’s upbeat afropop-sounding guitar part from the Good Lover recording and performing it flawlessly on ‘ukulele.

I couldn’t help but figure the riff out one day. It’s so catchy! James capos on the 2nd fret of his English-tuned ‘ukulele (A D F# B) so the F shape that this riff runs around sounds like an A.

    Nice job Brad!… had to read the score twice… G vs F… then saw D6 tuning. . Then slapped my head like I need a V8… well with James Hill I need a V12… because this was an Anne song but it was James Hill on the Ukulele… nice job nometheless!

      Thanks, Moses! Took me a while to figure out where he was playing it when I was figuring it out, but then it made sense.
