Three Little Birds – Bob Marley and the Wailers – Chords

I was never a huge reggae guy but, of course, the uke hath showed me the light. This song works great on the uke (with a little key change) and I’m a sucker for any song with a hippy dippy message especially when it’s so well balanced and heartfelt.

As is my way lately, this version is kind of quick and bluegrassy but with slight tweaking of the strum, back to reggae, it would be a great song for new ukers to work on their chuck (hmm… I should probably write a chuck post, more to come). It’s a nice simple song but it’s reggae roots provide enough residual timing funkiness to keep it a bit challenging and fun.

And, like I say, with it’s simplicity and sweet message this is a great song for uke clubs, camp fires, Christmas, kids…. etc. I think it finds it’s way into most of my songbooks.
