GUGUG Week: California Sun

GUGUG – California Sun (Chords)(PDF)

I couldn’t let GUGUG week go by without some reference to the Ramones (although this song was originally done by the Rivieras).

The chords for it are dead simple and so is the strumming. For most of the chords you can do a down, down, up, up, down. The only exception are the F and G chords on the, “…warm California sun” bit. For each of those do a down, down, up.

The tricky bit is the little riff at the end of each line of the verse.

    My favorite part is the wobble board. I like how Fin wrote “wobble” on it. I think he should write “ceci n’est pas un wobble board.” Ha, ha.

    Ummm…I think I have both the ukes that they’re using. That must make me at least half as cool as them.

    Great addition. Thanks, Al.

    Marcy: And he’s rocking the bandanna and headphones look while he’s doing it. Class!

    Emily: Get a wobble board and you’ll be just as cool as them.
