The October song– “Build Me Up Buttercup”

Ukulele players everywhere have messed around with this song since at least the first days of YouTube–you’ll find many versions of it online. But the original version from 1969 by the Foundations still can’t be beat. It’s a complex song with 12 chords, so it may take some practice–it’s an excellent idea, then, to download “Build Me Up Buttercup” now and start strumming. It’s also in our Ukulele Music Library.

Listen to the song below, and pick up on the tricky rhythms:

Hope you’ll be there October 11!
