Undressed is minimalistic works that loosely follows the principles ofArvo Pärt’s tintinnabuli. The melody is played on the first string while the thumb plays and repeats a triad arpeggio on the bottom three strings—re-tuned to sound an E minor chord when played open.

This piece is to be played with scordatura: retune the third string of a re-entrant tuning ukulele down to B. I played this version over a low E cello drone.

Score, including notation and tablature, is available from The Ukulele Bookshop.
