While you are learning how to play Wipe Out in this ukulele video lessons, there are two basic parts to it. There is the picking, which takes you through the opening sequence of Wipe Out and there are the chords. First we will go through how to do the picking.
With the picking, you are going to start on the E string on the third fret. Pick the string while it's open without holding anything down. Then you will hold down on the third fret, then move up to the fourth fret, move up to the fifth fret, pick open, then go back to the third fret, fourth fret, fifth fret, fifth fret once again, then back to the third fret and open.
Once that is done, you go to the A string, pick it open, then hold down the third fret, the fourth fret, the fifth fret, the third fret ,open, third fret, fourth fret, fifth fret, third fret, open again, and then back to E string.
Start out open on E, third fret, fourth fret, fifth fret, third fret, open, back to A string, third fret, fourth fret, fifth fret, third fret, open.
When you are done with your picking, you slide your pointer finger on the E string down to the fourth fret and your pinky finger will go to the seventh fret on your A string. You then want to slide it down two more frets to make a D.
The last chord is on the fifth fret and you strum the E7.
