“Love Me Do” ʻUkulele Chords by The Beatles

You’ve got to love it when a you find out that a mega-hit song is as simple to play on ʻukulele as “Love Me Do” by the Fabulous Four. But sometimes you find that popular songs ARE easy. Like other Beatles hits such as “Octopus’s Garden” and “Here Comes the Sun.”

“Love Me Do” has a romping sort of rhythm so you can us a DDUUD strum and you’re pretty much on the way to capturing the feel!

To recreate the harmonica riff it might be nice to use tremolo on some of the notes. It will help draw them out and make them sound more effected. Here’s how to do that: tremolo picking.
