The Vaccines – Wreckin’ Bar (Ra Ra Ra) (Chords)

The Vaccines – Wreckin’ Bar (Ra Ra Ra)

Posting So Long and Thanks for All the Fish put my chords-per-song average way out of whack. So time for something nice and simple. Three chords. 80 seconds. Bosh!

The original is in Eb, if you want to make it even simpler you can move it down a fret so it’s in D. Like this:

Wreckin’ Bar in D

Suggested Strumming

You can use this as the main strum:

d – d u d u d u

Play that twice for the Eb (or D); then two downstrums each for Ab and Bb; then back to the main strum once for the Eb. So it sounds like this:

Strumming Pattern

For the other section, play the main strum twice for each chord except the last one – do 8 down strums.

Twiddly Bits

The solo, with a little poking, works well on the uke. Just a bit of bending to contend with.

Which sounds a bit like this:


If you’re playing in D, just move everything down a fret (the tab for that is with the chords).
