It's been awhile since we've done a clean, simple, two-chord song for beginner uke players (the last one being, "What I Got" by Sublime back in May of last year) - so here's one for all you ukulele players who are just getting started! We've got the quirky hit song from 1979, "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)" by Rupert Holmes, as simply covered by Jack Johnson, for you to learn, jam, and play for your friends. Check out the video above to learn how to hold the chords, strum the strumming pattern, and play the picking for this song, and as always if you have any questions, we're always here to help answer them. Play along with the Play-Along, have fun with this song, & keep strummin'!
