MGMT Kids Ukulele Tutorial

September 22, 2014

Thank you to Todd for another great ukulele tutorial on the MGMT Kids ukulele chords. He starts the ukulele tutorial by playing a bit of the song, including the ukulele finger picking. To play along with the original recording you do need a capo on the second fret, which is part of this ukulele lesson. He starts with the chords and then goes into the riff. I agree with his comments that this a cool way to play Kids on the uke! Happy strumming!
