Some weeks ago I tried to get some information / review / experience on the RISA Electric Ukulele (bought it - a wonderful toy). A friendly forum member recommended to check out the „Friends of Old Puppy“ videos on YT. Awesome ! One of the songs they play is Blondie’s „Heart of Glass“. I always liked this pop gem, but never thought of transferring it to ukulele.
Total of five parts:
Intro [ A ] is best played strummed on the lower three strings, except for the last two notes. The intro riff can also be used as a filler where ever you find it appropriate. The Verse [ B ] requires a little effort of the pinky to play the high melody note. Chorus [ C ], Instrumental Break [ D ] and the „ooh-oh - whoo - ah“ Outro [ E ] are best fingerpicked.
Interesting is the changing of measures in the instrumental break. As always, keep the rhythm during long notes and breaks by strumming.
