I Wanna Be Like You (Chords)
This one is a big favourite with ukulele groups (as ably demonstrated by the Hull Ukulele Group). But it could have been written for Hobbit to sing. It’s a perfect fit. Which is a whole lot more than you can say about the Jonas Brothers. I somehow find it hard to believe they spend anguished nights desperately wishing they could rid themselves of their wild instincts and join respectable society.
Although they do have a glint in their eyes which seems to say, “Teach me to destroy so I may be truly respected.”
Suggested Strumming Pattern
d – d u – u d u
Twice for each chord until you get to G7. Just one strum for that. Then the pattern twice for C and A7, once for D7, once for G7.
Next bit is a little tricky timing wise. Strum the pattern once for C. Then down once on C and down three times on G7.
The intro goes like this:
Also on the C and A7 in the chorus Hobbit is switching between the chords and strumming all the strings open.
