How To Play Bill Withers' Lean On Me On Ukulele

A Little Info About This Lesson

“Lean on Me’ was written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Bill Withers. Released in 1972, the song went to the list of Billboard Hot 100 and is ranked number 208 on Rolling Stone’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.

Our friend Jeffrey Thomas made a version that followed the signature piano intro. The arrangement is not exactly a basic strum along with version but we think you’ll enjoy it. There’s a right-hand technique detail and rhythmic aspect to follow on this video lesson. If you’re into old classic music, then this song should be included in your playlist. Enjoy!
