Jam 16 – Dirty Old Town by The Pogues

May 12, 2016 Podcast 7

Skip ahead to 04:23 to get straight to the lesson.

Dirty Old Town, a song that is incredibly fun to play as a group. Try it! It’s incredible, especially if everyone knows the words, and somebody can play the solo’s, which are quite simple.

So I go over the strumming pattern, I talk a little about the 3 changes in key, and I step you through the solo.

    Hello. I want to thank you for your work on this song. I just recently came across this song and have been enjoying the Pogues version. It was all new to me. I recently bought a guitar after about 7 years of playing baritone ukulele, tuned DGBE. The nylon strings and finger spacing on the bari-uke make it so easy to play. I think this song is a great song for me to build skills on both.

    I have done a couple of blogs for baritone ukulele. The oldest is Humble Baritonics and the second is based on Bari-players that I’ve come across of the years called, The Bad-Ass Baritone Ukulele.

    I intend to work though this video several times and to share/link to your video on Humble Baritonics since the melody lines sit so well on the instrument.

    Thanks again,

    Jeff in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA
