El Condor Pasa ʻUkulele Tab by Simon & Garfunkel

condorpasaHere’s a Simon and Garfunkel classic with an alternate title of If I Could. The song fits well on the ʻukulele and a student requested a tab for it so here it is.

Simon and Garfunkel have been a favorite of mine ever since hearing Jake’s version of Mrs. Robinson and then looking up the original. What harmonies! What amazing songwriting! If only raw music like theirs was still on the top 40 stations.

Anyways, here’s one of their more popular tunes arranged in E minor for the ʻukulele.

The tab is laid out lead sheet-style with the melody and words. The chords are highlighted above so it should be very obvious in a couple places where you can flesh out the tune with some additional strums.

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
