Are you ready to get into a little trouble!? On this month's episode of Uke Lessons, we delve right into Paul Simon's classic song about juvenile delinquency, "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard". On the surface, this song seems pretty easy - with a simple strumming pattern and a fairly easy single-note picking to match the whistling solo - but don't let that fool you, practice is a MUST in order to get this song down tight. With rapid-fire chord changes and a few of the more troublesome chords (including the dreaded E!), you might need to review the "Mastering Difficult Chords" Uke Minute to help you to pull this one off. Be sure to check out the "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" Play-Along to play the song along with Aldrine and, as always, let us know what you think! Hope your November is amazing - keep rocking that uke!
