“Island In The Sun” By Weezer ‘Ukulele Chords

Another fantastically dweeby Weezer tune. Best known for its “hip, hip”s, Island in The Sun uses a simple repeating chord progression that makes it a prime candidate for memorizing.

The rhythm pattern is really what makes this song recognizable so be sure to rush the chord change to the D. It’s half a beat earlier than you’d expect which gives the whole song a great push forward.
