Ukulelezo – Optional Accessory (Chords)


Ukulelezo – Optional Accessory (Chords)

This year’s Bushman contest has just started. So what better time to put up chords for the winner of last year’s Bushman contest: Ukulelezo’s Optional Accessory. It was a deserving winner; refulgent with wit, originality and a killer chord progression. Must have been the easiest decision the Bushman nabobs ever made.

None of the chords in the song are too tricky but they come along fast and furious which makes this one a bit of a bugger to play. I still can’t get the hang of it.

Suggested Strumming

Zoe’s a bit of a chord-slag and doesn’t spend long on any chord. Most of them just last for two down strums.

Requested by Kelly.

    Acilius: Thanks!

    Sunny Jim: I can’t do it. My memory isn’t good enough.

    Jimmy: You should have heard what I said before the edit.

    Lonna: Ta very much.

    mictoboy: Mine too. After I came up with that I took the rest of the day off.

    Refulgent and chord-slag in the same description? What is it, my birthday? Thanks, Al. Love you.

    I may need to make a chord-slag t-shirt.

    Have the courage of your convictions Uklelezo – get a “chord-slag” tatoo!

    I always wondered when you’d get this one up, it’s a great tune.
    And “chord-slag” really tickled me.

    Zoe: I shall try to use a wider vocabulary and include more casual misogyny.

    Charles: It was definitely overdue.

Got something to say?
