One of my finest moments in ukulele arranging came many years ago when I posted a video on Youtube of myself playing an instrumental version of “21 Guns”. Ever since people have been asking for an ukulele tab of this famous Green Day song.
Here’s a much younger, chubby-faced me playing my arrangement:
There’s nothing too tricky about this ukulele tab, but to catch the melody inside the harmony you’ve got to jump up to higher position chords. This consists mainly of the
7565 Bb chord that gets visited often throughout the piece.
The hardest part about this change is the switch down to the C note on the 3rd fret after Bb. Following the C note you play an F chord so you want to fret the 3rd fret with your pinky finger. This change leaves you hopping from 7565 down past what you might feel is normal, but in the long run it makes it easier than switching after Bb AND the C note.
