Popeye the Sailor Man

I ran across the chords for Popeye the Sailor Man on Alligator Boogaloo and decided I had to work out the tune. This is the easiest way to play it:

But if you play it like this:

You can mix it up with this tune and everyone who hears it will instantly fall in love with you.

    I like the first version of this but at the end I prefer to play the last three notes with the 5th, 7th, & 8th frets on the E string. It gives it a nice, up beat sound to it.

Got something to say?
