The Banana Boat Song - Ukulele Chords

The Banana Boat song - one of the first tunes I learned on guitar many, many moons ago, but works great on ukulele if played with a relaxed island rhythm!


A great beginner song - only two chords to worry about, and both of those only use one finger!


BANANA BOAT SONG

I know that Song with a C insteat of the D.
So maybe thats an error-because D needs 3 fingers as well ;-)

still thanks for the site, good stuff!
