Tears For Fears – Everybody Wants To Rule The World

Everybody Wants To Rule The World

This is quite possibly my favourite song from the 80s. I initially became aware of this band due to hearing them on one of the GTA: Vice City radio stations. Lets learn to play it on the 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. 

Ukulele Tabs

This is one of them songs that we can make it a lot easier on ourselves if get our fingers in the correct positions before plucking any strings.  Place your ring finger on the 4th fret of the C string. Your middle finger needs to be hovering over the E string ready to place it on the 5th fret after we slide down the neck. Then place your first finger on the 2nd fret of the A.
