In this Whiteboard Request, Aldrine covers "Margaritaville" a popular song among ukulele clubs. Unlike many simplified versions of the song, which stick to D, G, and A chords, Aldrine includes a few more chords to better mirror Jimmy Buffett's version. He also goes over a simple strumming pattern and teaches you a fun little intro.
