Oingo Boingo – Mary (Chords)

Oingo Boingo – Mary (Chords)

Probably the strangest chord progression I’ve put up so far. There’s a chord at every fret between B and D. It’s so strange I kept going back to check I hadn’t got the chords completely wrong (and I’m still not sure I haven’t).

I’ve written out the chords for a uke with a capo at the first fret. It seemed to make most sense that way. But there are still some tricky chord changes to navigate along the way.

You can listen to some of the song in this video and you can get a few more Boingo chords here.
