Mustang Sally Ukulele Chords

Another tune that the The Nukes are adding into their ukulele set - Mustang Sally made most famous by Wilson Pickett.

We play this in D, but it is very easy to transpose it up or down to suit your voice. Another popular key replaces the D7, G7 and A below with G7, C7, and D7. It's cool either way.

It's a really easy song to play but the trick is to get some hammer on going on the D7 and G7 in time with the beat. I think the D7 sounds even nicer if you slide to it from a barre on the first fret, ie a 1112 to 2223. Listen to the recording and you will see what I mean.
