Sesame Street (Easy Chords)

Sesame Street (Easy Chords)

Jayne left a comment on the original chords for Sesame Street suggesting an easy version of the chords. And, since it’s a song the kiddies might be interested in playing, I thought I’d go for it.

Suggested Strumming

For the first part you can use:

d – d u d – d u

For each chord until you get to G7. Then do just down strums for that. Back to the pattern for F7. Then just one down strum for the G7, Bb and F. After that you’re back to the pattern.

    You don’t happen to have the chords (easy or hard) for the bridge? The part that goes “It’s a magic carpet ride / every door will open wide / for happy people like you-u / happy people like / what a beautiful…”

    I’m reading a book right now called Street Gang- it’s the complete history of Sesame Street.

    Turns out, most of us Americans wouldn’t know how to read if we’d not had good old Big Bird teaching us thru the tube.

    How about some Spongebob Squarepants tabs, please? Almost all the music from that show is ukulele or hawaiian slack-key guitar (probably because of the whole Hawaiian, under-the-ocean theme to the show).
    I am a new fan of the your site, by the way. It’s pretty freakin’ awesome.

    I agree with Shawn Jarrar… the Spongebob Squarepants theme would be awesome. My ukulele band and I want to add it to our repertoire :)
