10 Guitar Riffs For Ukulele

Here’s 10 fairly recognisable guitar riffs I recorded for ukulele. You should always have a couple of well-known rock riffs up your sleeve to play for people when they inevitably ask, “play something I know!”

Pearl Jam – Alive
The Rolling Stones – Satisfaction
Nirvana – Come As You Are
White Stripes – Seven Nation Army
Smashing Pumpkins – Today
Aerosmith – Walk This Way
AC/DC – Highway To Hell
Mumford & Sons – The Cave
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Scar Tissue
Cream – Sunshine Of You Love

 Top Ukulele Sites

There’s bound to be at least one from these ten that you will recognise! I’ve got another bunch that I will record at a later date too. Most of these I’ve found the tabs for somewhere on the net, ukelelehunt.com springs to mind as well as a couple from Youtube tutorial videos. Enjoy!

  1. Hey Ukulefty,
    On a similar note,, Most of us who listen to rock music are familiar with those little musical phrases that lend the song a distinct feel and personality. These are called riffs, the characteristic and often, repetitive chord progressions or melodies that determine the rhythm and style of a song. Making guitar riffs is quite simple, yet also an art.
    Keep up the good work
