Status Quo – Caroline

I have always been a huge fan of status quo, i love any kind of jangly guitar playing like that on Down Down and Whatever You Want, which had a revival in the UK thanks to a Wilkos advert 🤣. The song that always stuck with me though was Caroline. A guaranteed foot stomper!

What Are We Learning To Play?

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

Ukulele Tabs

The song is split into two parts. Theres a rhythm section that’s a basic blues shuffle. To play this i recommend using your first finger on the 1st fret of the E then your ring finger on the 3rd of the A. Then its just a case of using your pinky to hit the 5th and 6th frets when needed.
