A Little Info About This Lesson

"Something Stupid" is a song written by C. Carson Parks. As Carson and Gaile, Parks recorded it in 1966 with his wife Gaile Foote. The 1967 version by Frank Sinatra and his daughter Nancy Sinatra was a major international hit, reaching the top of the Billboard Hot 100 as well as the UK Singles Chart. A cover version by Australian actress Nicole Kidman and British singer Robbie Williams reached number one on the UK Singles Chart in 2001.

Better Call Saul fans will be familiar with this classic tune from the hit TV series. Here's how you can play it on the ukulele! The flamenco guitar technique used in Lola Marsh’s version is known as "rasgueado." In order to learn what that means, Jeff Thomas has broken down a short clip showing some of its most basic strums for those who may not know. Remember, you can also play the song with basic strumming. It’s a beginner-friendly song that anyone can learn to play.
