Ukulele Video Lesson -
See You Again
(Wiz Khalifa/Charlie Puth)

Using a ukulele video lesson will make learning to play “See You Again” by Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa fast and easy. This song is just a couple of years old and was recorded specifically for the soundtrack to the movie Furious Seven, part of the Fast and Furious franchise. It’s a good song that has a lot of meaning in the film. It plays at the end, when the characters played by Paul Walker and Vin Diesel drive away from one another. It also resonates beyond the film, which has helped to make it so popular.

About this ukulele video lesson

It is important to keep in mind that there are two versions of this song. There is the song from the film that features both Charlie Puth singing and Wiz Khalifa rapping. There is also a version that is solely Charlie singing and playing piano. Both are very good and catchy. Which version of the song should you learn? To be honest, they are very similar.

You can learn the full piano version from Charlie first, as this is going to give you the foundation you need for the song. Once you have this version of the song under your belt, you will find that it is quite easy to perform the version with Khalifa’s rapping. 

When you are playing the piano version, you will find that it tends to be quite easy to play and sing, and that it does sound quite nice on ukulele. It may have a bit of a slower feel than some of the songs you are accustomed to playing, but the melody really is quite nice. If you want to play the version that was on the soundtrack, you might want to consider having someone else take care of the rapping while you sing (or vice versa), to make your overall duties of playing and singing easier. Of course, you might be talented enough that you can do it all once you see the ukulele video lesson!

This was written during Charlie Puth’s second day of writing music in Los Angeles. The song he wrote the day before was “Marvin Gaye”. He’s one of the most talented young songwriters working in the business today. The song was inspired by Paul Walker’s tragic death, as well as a death of someone close to Puth who died in a similar manner.

Why Should You Learn “See You Again”

This is a beautiful song, and it is instantly recognizable. Even those who have not seen the films have probably hear the song, as it was very popular when released, and remains popular today. The song went from #10 on the Hot 100 all the way to the top spot. This marked the first time that a soundtrack was in the top spot at the same time a song from the soundtrack was #1 since 8-Mile all the way back in 2003. The song hit the top spot on plenty of other lists, as well. In fact, it was the fastest rise from the bottom of the Hot 100 to the top spot, taking just five weeks.

The song is not too difficult to learn and play on the ukulele, and you can break it down into separate parts with the ukulele video lesson to make it even easier for you to learn. Once you learn the pieces, put them together and start singing. As soon as you do, you can be sure others are going to know the song. Some might even want to start singing along with you.
