Learn to play an easy version of "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars on Ukulele
This time on Songs Made Easy, you'll learn how to play "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars. Aldrine teaches you how to play the song in the key of C, using just 3 repeating chords. It doesn't get much easier than that! As always, he shows you how to transition from chord to chord while using a simple strumming pattern. The original recording is in the key of F, so if you try to play along with Mr. Mars it won't match up. But if you're serenading your special someone, this will work perfectly.
If you're a Bruno Mars fan and you want more of a challenge, check out our Uptown Funk - Uke Lesson. It's a beginner level lesson that calls for just 2 chords. Aldrine does use a few varieties of mutes, but if you like quick lyrics and even quicker picking, this is the lesson for you.
