Right Hand Technique for ‘Ukulele: A Detailed Guide to Strumming & Picking

“King Without a Crown” by Matisyahu ‘Ukulele Tab

youthMatisyahu stands tall amongst the often generic acts populating the reggae genre. He uses deep lyrics and an almost rap-like delivery of them, along with simple, but interesting instrumentation to make reggae music worth listening to again.

King Without a Crown is his biggest hit and has a very cool picking rhythm part.

It was probably overkill to create this  Ľukulele tab in Guitar Pro 6, but I love the high-quality look and feel it provides – along with the challenge of inputting the correct note durations. One thing I didn’t attempt was to insert Matisyahu’s machine gun barrage of words into the file. You’ll have to sync the two up yourself (a feat in itself).

I’m an ‘ukulele artist from Honoka’a, Hawai’i, where I run this site from a little plantation house in the jungle. I’ve taught workshops internationally, made Herb Ohta Jr. laugh until he cried, and once borrowed a uke to jam with HAPA onstage in my boardshorts. More about me
