A seriously cool tune from one of my favorite rock bands. Dave Grohl’s straight-ahead style mixed with haunting songwriting makes for a piece that is fun to cover on the ‘ukulele, but will also teach you much if you work to figure it out.
Here’s a video tutorial I put together to explain the interesting Everlong ‘ukulele chords and riff. You’ll need a low-G string on your ‘ukulele. Chord sheet included below.
Some of the chords are a bit obscure, but you can find some help on this page.
