Live performance of Bob Dylan performing “Blowing In The Wind” 1963

Peter, Paul & Mary performing “Blowing In The Wind”

“Blowin’ in the Wind” is a song written by Bob Dylan in 1962 and released on his album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan in 1963. Although it has been described as a protest song, it poses a series of rhetorical questions about peace, war and freedom. The refrain “The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind” has been described[by whom?] as “impenetrably ambiguous: either the answer is so obvious it is right in your face, or the answer is as intangible as the wind”. In 1999, the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In 2004, it was ranked #14 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.

Below are the opening measures of “Blowing In The Wind” showing both standard notation as well as Ukulele TABLATURE. . . The 4 lines represent the 4 strings of the Ukulele . . . The top line is the First string . . . that’s the string which is closest to the floor when you hold the Ukulele to play. . . The fingering in this piece is moderately difficult . . .not too much barring but a little is needed to reach the upper fret melody.
