Here’s a tune by the Mamas and the Papas to strum along with. Dream a Little Dream of Me is one of those brilliantly written songs that seems to pull fresh chord patterns out of thin air
It’s in the key of C, just like the recording, so you can play and sing along.
This song has some bizarre chords so you might want to check out the ʻukulele chords I’ve diagramed just for such purposes.
