Hey UUers!

Happy New Year!
2013 has arrived and here in the Underground we're kicking it up a notch with a tutorial for "Classical Gas" (by Mason Williams) on the Ukulele! This one isn't for the faint of heart - it's got a ton of chords, quick changes, and some fingerpicking work to keep you busy - but if you're willing to invest a little practice time, it's a really fun song to play. Take it slow & you'll get it in no time!

2013 is going to be a really awesome year for uke players around the world and UU has a lot of brand new surprises and gifts in store just for you! Stay tuned, keep strummin', and may your new year be a rad one!

Aloha,
-UU Staff

  1. This is great but can’t find the tabs or chords to help me memorize it. Guess I just have to watch it over and over. Thanks though. I love this piece.

    1. Hey Taegrr,

      Aldrine is using a tenor ukulele in this video. He almost always uses a tenor ukulele in the videos. Occasionally he will use a soprano in the play-along video, but he always uses a tenor in the lessons. Baritone ukuleles have different tuning, so you wouldn’t see him using it in any of the lessons, except for the webinar specifically on the baritone ukulele.

  2. PLEASE can you do some tabs for this? While your arrangements and videos are fantastic, some of us (maybe it’s age???) have a problem memorising stuff unless we can see it as more of a whole. Personally, if I can see a sort of series of pictures (which tab is to me) I can remember a piece well.

  3. Aloha from a cold wet England! Love your teaching Aldrine! Please please please will you do a PDF download tab for this one like you did for Fly me to the Moon? That was so helpful!
