In this Ukulele Whiteboard Request, Aldrine walks you though Chris Stapleton's version of "Tennessee Whiskey". Coming in with only two chords, a straightforward strumming pattern, and a fairly basic picking pattern, you can add this song to your repertoire in no time. But don't let it's simplicity fool you, this song packs an emotional punch, and Aldrine shows you how adding a couple of techniques can really elevate this tune to a soulful arrangement. Be sure to use those chunks to bring that authentic feel to the strumming pattern, and experiment with vibratos and bends to really make your picking sing.
