Wild Thing - The Troggs - Ukulele Chords

Ok, a very well known song this one, great fun to play on a ukulele. Wild Thing by The Troggs.


Now.. this fits as one of those easy in parts and tough in parts songs for a beginner. You may shriek in horror at the E chord, but I would encourage you to give this a go. The chord changes are nice and slow, and a switch from a D to an E is one of the easier transitions up the neck. The trick to this one is all in the rhythm - video at the end of the lyrics to play along to!

The main verses are just a rolling pattern of A, D, E, D over and over. The chords in the middle sections are the very well known riff of G, A, G, A in that da daaaa da daaaa sound.
