Helpful Tips

Learn to play the theme song from the motion picture franchise Beverly Hills Cop. We’ve arranged this song as a duet for ukulele and u-bass. As the ukulele player, you’ll learn the two most iconic melodies from the theme!

From a playing standpoint, this piece is at the intermediate level in terms of what’s required from our left and right hands. What makes it challenging is the syncopated rhythm. Therefore, I’d recommend playing it by ear. Remember, if you can sing it, you can play it! The melodies are very catchy, so use that as a guide for nailing the rhythm.
