The Riff by Dave Matthews Band Ukulele Chords


So just to get this out of the way, I’m not tabbing the entirety of the song, just the
main riffs, which are repeated throughout anyways. On the parts with the chords, they’re
basically just your regular F, A#, and C chords, I’m not going to tell you how to strum
them or how may times etc. You can do it 🙂 I usually try to be as accurate as I can with
my tabs, and spell out every part, which is also why I use Tuxguitar most of the
time…but for this one I just wanted to get a simple tab out there for everyone to get the
hang of it.
So…please enjoy 🙂
