Daft Punk – One More Time

One More Time

One More Time is from the stellar Discovery album by Daft Punk. They are titans of the dance music industry and it turns out their songs also great on a ukulele.

What Are We Learning To Play?

Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post. 

This sounds wonderful on the ukulele as we are using an open Gmaj7 chord. That open note on the G string is going to make it sound really full.
 
The first note is a hammer-on. That’s plucking the open E and then pressing down on the 2nd fret without actually plucking it. The chords are pretty straightforward after that. Use your pinky finger to hit that 7th fret. It can be a stretch if you’re using anything like a tenor ukulele. Play the first section three times.

 

The next chord can be a little tight. In that case, you can play an open A string instead of fretting the 7th.
