Learn to play "What I Got" by Sublime on the Ukulele
On this Songs Made Easy, we're teaching you how to play What I Got by Sublime. It only uses only 2 chords and it's in the same key as the original. Super Easy! The hardest part of this song might actually be those quick and quirky lyrics.
Our Uke Lesson of this song, uses a C chord instead of G chord. It was a stylistic choice, but both versions work. If you want to learn a more involved strumming pattern (with added chunks), check out the original Uke Lesson. Aldrine also teaches you an alternate fingerpicking pattern that you can play instead of strumming. And he shows you two different picking riffs.
We've jammed this song on Aloha Friday Live Jams. You can check out this Jam Replay to play along. Heads up, Aldrine does play the C chord instead of the G. He also explains why he chose the C chord over the G in his arrangement of the song.
Stick around for more Songs Made Easy. We'll be streaming a new lesson every Thursday at 2:15 PM (HST). You're more than welcome to tune in LIVE and ask questions in the chat.
