Train - Hey Soul Sister - ukulele chords

Another example of a popular modern tune that has been a huge hit in the ukulele world - Hey Soul Sister by Train.


Bonkers lyrics (in my opinion) and to play along with the record means some difficult chords including the dreaded E chord. That C#m chord is fingered either 1444, or try a barre with the forefinger at the 4th fret with the middle finger on the G string at the 6th. To avoid problems with the E chord, simply barre at the 4th and don't play the A string. Playing at way with the C#m at the fourth also makes that transition easier.

I make an E chord with first finger on second fret 1st string then third finger on 2nd, third and fourth strings, fourth fret, according to my uke book. It is much easier.
