I finally got around to recording another video lesson. I went for Big Me by the Foo Fighters (which for you kids out there, is from back when they were good)…
It’s a nice easy song to play, there’s just 6 chords in it and it converts pretty well to ukulele.
6 chords will see you through and they are C, Am, G, F, C7 and E minor. They’re pretty easy to play but if you’re an absolute beginner then E minor might pose a few problems initially. If it does, have a blast at some 60 second chord changes.
The good old down down up up down up sounds pretty good on this one. It’s worth mixing it up a little bit by playing the final bar as down up down up up down up to get the sound of the record shining through.
Have a look at the PDF song sheet to get to grips with the structure of the song. It’s split into 3 basic parts intro/verse, chorus and outro. The video breaks these down to help you through it.
