Uke-ifying my favourite songs

The Universal – Blur

A few quickies, as I’ve had these sat on the shelf for a while. First up is this one from Blur, released in 1995 at the peak of the phenomenon known as  Britpop (from the same album as County House). Probably better known now instrumentally as the backing track to British Gas TV and radio adverts.

The song is reasonably straightforward, once you’ve got the hang of the rhythm – for the verses I just try to follow the rhythm that the string-section leads, with an on-the-beat thrashing for the chorus. Try it yourself and you’ll find something that works. Enjoy!
