The year is flying by at lightning speed - only a couple more months before those holiday parties start coming around, so the time is NOW to really hone your uke skills and ready them for blowing the minds of your friends and family. For this month's episode of Uke Lessons, we've got an awesome song that all of your relatives will want to sing along to while you provide a sweet, sweet ukulele accompaniment: Imagine by John Lennon.
We're categorizing this lesson as "Beginner" because it's in the Key of C, with no super-fancy chords, and has a simple (though very iconic) picking for you to play. But, make no mistake, it will take some practice because the song is slow and steady, so working to stay on beat while keeping the rhythm flowing will be a challenge. For real beginners, this one will take a lot of time and patience, because even for a moderately "slow" song, it has some quick changes that require you to be nimble on your fingers, but will definitely be worth it in the end. Have fun with it, play along with the Play-Along, and let us know if you have any questions or need anything at all!
Keep rockin' that uke
