Robert Johnson – They’re Red Hot (Chords)
Of all the Robert Johnson songs, this one suits the ukulele the best. The quickfire chord changes make it a lot of fun to play. UOGB’s Will Grove-White listed it as one of his favourite songs to play on the uke. But this version wasn’t taken from UOGB’s slow, slinky version but based on James Clem‘s more traditional take on it.
The chords can take a whole lot of changing around. In The Baron’s version he replaces the B chord with an E7 and adds an extra G7 in at the end of the first sequence. Or you can miss that chord out completely and go straight from C to A7 (probably the easiest option for beginners).
