Learn to Play Bring Me Sunshine by Morecambe and Wise
Growing up the in the U.K. I often used to watch reruns of Morecambe and Wise with my parents. One of the things that I loved the most as a kid was the songs they used to play including the theme song, Bring me sunshine. This song was original by Arthur Kent but became their signature song
In addition, it’s a good song to learn on the ukulele as it features several simple and familiar chords which care often used in other songs. This makes it great practice and a fun song to play. So I decided to create the tabs and lesson how to play it.
Listen to the song
Here are all the chords that’s you’ll need to play this song. You can play D7 in this form (which is easier for beginners) or 3334 which is a little more difficult.
How to strum
The strumming patter for this song works best as a down, down up, up down up pattern with a few exceptions. For examples, when you have the D7, G7 C chord change at “Bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love”. You can speed up your strums here, doubling up at parts.
And when you arrive at final “bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love, sweet love.” You may want to strum down on every half beat to give it a regular pace.
It is also worth experimenting with strumming the up beats softer than the down beats.
