Sure this song is played on a Ukulele but don’t let that stop you from playing it on the guitar. In my latest free tutorial video you can learn the chords and the basic strumming for this song and by placing a capo on the fifth fret it makes the guitar sound like a Ukulele. This song has a fast sixteenth note rhythm with accents on the upbeats. In this video I show you how to make the accents by separating the strings rather than hitting them harder.
You can learn a lot of basic strumming rhythms that are used in real songs from real people including sixteenth note rhythms in The Complete Basic Rhythm Course available through a subscription at www.edkihm.com/subscribe/.
