Tubular Bells Ukulele Tab (Intro)

Tubular Bells Intro


Tubular Bells Ukulele Tab – Play the intro to Mike Oldfield’s 1973 masterpiece. Here are three different versions. Example 1 makes full use of the Ukulele’s re-entrant tuning (read more about re-entrant tunning here). Spreading the melody across all four stings creates a ‘harp-like’ effect with more sustain. If you are use to playing the guitar, this kind of arpeggio (with a high note on the fourth string) can take a bit of getting use to and may seem counterintuitive at first. Persevere – this is one of most beautiful aspects of the Uke. Example 2 is more guitar-like positional arrangement which still offers a bit of sustain in view of the held down strings. Example 3 is an easier version – still holding on to the main elements of the tune.
