    Default Uke Lesson 24 - Ehu Girl

    Hey UUers! Episode 24 of Uke Lessons is up and runnin'!

    Uke Lesson 24 - Ehu Girl


    This song has been ALL OVER the airwaves in Hawaii and is pretty sweet, especially because the uke player for this band is one of our very own. Be sure to support them and pick up a copy of Kolohe Kai's album on iTunes!

    The Play-Along was recorded live this time, so what you hear is exactly what they sound like acoustically. A couple things to note:
    - In the Play-Along most of the time when Noah (ukulele) is playing G7, it looked & sounded like Roman (guitar) was playing G. In the chord diagrams I stuck to what the ukulele was playing.
    - The Dm before the pre-chorus (..."it was just like heaven & a dream come true...") is a down strum on Am7 (0000) then an upstrum on Dm (2210). Example.
    - Sometimes when Noah plays G, he uses the (4232) fingering instead of (0232) - especially when it is played before the 2453 Am. "We're standing in the right place at the right time" Example.
    - During the chorus, sometimes when he plays G7 (0212) he hammers on the 2 on the A string so it goes from (0210) to (0212). "... and now I don't know what to do" Example.


    Questions, comments, thoughts, ideas, explanations for what the word "ehu" means for all our mainland & international viewers, etc. - Post what you got below!!
