It's another month, another episode of Uke Lessons, and an amazingly fun one to boot! This time, we're tackling Santana's version of "Oye Como Va" for you to sing, pick, and strum to your ukulele-playing pleasure. There are only two chords (Am and D), so this is a great one for beginners to begin strumming along to. But don't be fooled - for all you intermediate players, the rhythm and picking patterns will keep you busy for awhile, so practice hard, learn the song by heart and rock out with your friends.
As always, be sure to check out the Play-Along and play along with the song! There are a couple slight differences between the way Aldrine teaches the picking in the tutorial and the way he plays it in the Play-Along video. See if you can spot them, and choose the version you prefer better! Have fun with this & keep strummin'
