‘Hideaway’ is an iconic blues guitar standard that every great player has covered. My interpretation weighs heavy on SRV’s version. This arrangement features the main melody, 4 riffs, and an outro. The song is definitely technique heavy and makes use of hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides extensively. The best advice I can give you is to learn this song section by section, and master one at a time before moving on. You’ll notice that many of the riffs have the same ending, which makes learning the piece that much easier! I’ve played this song since I was 15 and it was a blast to put it on uke! I hope you dig it as much as I do!
