Theme from the Addams Family

by | Oct 6, 2015 | Video lessons | 4 comments

Do you want to learn how to play the theme from the Addams Family on ukulele?

Jenny has created another fun lesson video in time for Halloween.  The sing and strum part of the song is very easy – only three chords – our old friends, C, F and G7.

But you can add a dash of Halloween excitement with the fun fingerpicked intro.

Here is an image of the intro.

Notice the numbers in the middle of the staff.  These are the finger numbers to use as you play the cute little lick.  The tab shows you what strings and frets to use.

    Hi Jenny, I loved that show and movie. I downloaded the pdf. Looks like a easy, fun tune to play. I have been walking around humming this song all day now. I ordered the tenor ukulele that was in your store from Amazon. I should be receiving it tomorrow. I already have a soprano uke but my daughter and I are sharing it now. I don't share well!
    Take care, Arlene

      Hard to share one ukulele with two people!

    Do you have the tab for "Over the Rainbow" like you did for the Adams Family song?
