#347 - The Moon Song

Song - The Moon Song
Artist - Karen O
Chord source


  1. This has got to be one of my all time favorite songs. It seems that it is stuck on repeat in my brain all the time.
    As simple a tune as it is, it is very difficult to learn. I have been studying your finger picking to do my best at getting it right. (I had to copy this video so I have your picking style right in front of me as I am not always in internet area)
    It is a long and slow process for me. but hopefully it will come in time.
    As I listen to each and every song you post, you have no idea how thrilled I was when you posted this one.
    Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the world. Guaranteed that you have put a smile on my face on the days that you post. Thank you Hanna.

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words! I agree, this song is great and will probably become one of those ukulele classics like "Tonight you Belong to me". The plucking pattern takes a minute to get used to, but once you get in a rhythm, I think you'll find it flows nicely. Because the structure of the picking stays the same no matter the chord, it's just a matter of relaxing and letting your fingers guide you :) Try playing it without singing until you feel comfortable, that was my biggest hang up with this tune.

    Thank you so much for watching my videos and leaving a comment!
