Junior Brown – Better Call Saul (Chords)

This one is hot off the press. The new song for the upcoming Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul. Although it’s performed by Junior Brown and his guit-steel, the lyrics are by show creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould with music by Dave Porter (composer of the Breaking Bad theme). On the downside, the video is only available in the US but you can listen to the song here.

The chords transfer very nicely to ukulele and there are a few tasty licks too.

Suggested Strumming

Here’s my favourite main strum:

d – d u d – d u d – d u d – d u

That’s just d – d u four times. That’ll see you most of the way through. There are a couple of places where the changes are quicker. For the A – C in the odd numbered verses and the E7 – D in the solos just do d – d u twice for each chord.

That’s pretty frenetic. So if you want something similar go for this:

d u – u – u – u

With the up strums short (stopping them just after you strum). Again, just split that in half for the quicker changes.

Twiddly Bits

There are a few simple but effective twiddles throughout the song. Here’s the little intro:

The little riff in the second half of the solo:

And the little run at the end:
