The Lumineers Ho Hey Ukulele Tutorial

February 24, 2014

This ukulele tutorial for The Lumineers Ho Hey is an easy one. There are very few chords to learn and they are displayed in the comments section, be sure to expand it. The strum pattern is a bit complex, but take your time to learn with his descriptive explanation. I had to practice with him quite a bit to get this one, but I enjoy the pattern for sure. And it fits perfectly with this version on the ukulele.
