The weather's hot, the wind is cool - it's a great time to be outside with your uke, playing and having some awesome music-filled days! So this month on Uke Lessons, we bring you the appropriately titled hit song "Best Day of My Life" by American Authors as a tutorial for you and your trusty ukulele. This one is relatively simple to learn and a blast to play, so learn the chords, strumming pattern, and picking for this song and teach it to your friends so you all can jam together (like Aldrine does with his buddies Melia Dudgeon, Addison Bulosan, and Mark Baldonado for the "Best Day of My Life" Ukulele Play-Along).
For more on Melia, our awesome young vocalist on the track, be sure to check out:
Also special THANKS to HA Coffee Bar (on Rice St., Lihue, Kauai) for letting us film and make noise in their lounge area. If you're on Kauai, be sure to swing by for awesome coffee and an open mic on Saturdays from 1-3pm!
Keep rocking that ukulele all summer long, with the songs that get you fired up to learn and grow as an ukulele player! And as always, if you have any questions or need help with anything, we're always here for you. Rock on.
