Every Breath You Take

Every Breath You Take

I first became aware of this song in the late 90s when P Diddy released his tribute to Notorious B.I.G and sampled it.  It was only in my teens when i realised it was  a sample and The Police were the writers of this beautiful piece of music. Let’s learn to play it on the ukulele.

Im using a low G for this one but you can get away with using a high G and it will still sound effective. The chords can be quite tricky as not only are we barring it, we are also using our pinky to change the shape midway through.
