Thanks to BUG member Richard Davis for suggesting this song! You can play along with The Mamas & Papas video below.
For beginners who just can't manage the [Ab] and [G] chords as shown - for the [G] just play the regular G chord; for the [Ab] just slide that G chord up one fret towards the body of the uke (to the 3rd fret) and strike the bottom 3 strings. But barre chords are AWESOME and important so why not give them a try?
"Dream a Little Dream of Me" was first recorded in February 1931 by Ozzie Nelson and also by Wayne King and His Orchestra, with vocal by Ernie Birchill.
