Crawdad - Uke > Chords and Strumming

Hail My Fine Uke Friends!

Welcome back to the ukulele corner of The Sonic Junction where we’ll be digging into one of my favorite sing along songs Crawdad. In this lesson we’ll work on rocking the 4 chord over the root chord in the key of C. It gives the song some real drive and the concept can, of course, be applied to many other tunes you come across. We’ll also look at a few flourishes that can happen with the F and G chords to give this a slightly bluesy sound. And I encourage you to join me with some harmonies. This is a pretty easy entry point for aspiring harmony singers and I want to hear how you’re doing with it! please reach out and let me know what’s up.

Thank you for joining me here at the Junction!
