A fun song from the animated short that precedes the Disney film Moana, this song is a heart-stealer! It’s the first song I teach in what I call “Hawaiian Style” where you can strum just with the pad of your index finger to get a softer sound, and you use a steady up-down pendulum pattern with a backbeat emphasis to make it groovy. Sound like uku-jargon? Watch then lesson and I think you will understand!
Strumming Pattern: 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 5 & 6 & 7 & 8 & d u D u d u D u d u D u d u D u
Generally, every chord in this song gets two patterns, except on the end of
the verse cycle you give one pattern to each chord. Just like this…
C G7 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 5 & 6 & 7 & 8 & d u D u d u D u d u D u d u D u
Verses ||: C G7 F C G7 :|| Chorus ||: F C G7 C :||
