MASH Theme for Ukulele – Suicide is Painless

Theme from MASH – Suicide is Painless for Solo Uke

I always though that this song would be much better and more effective if it was renamed,

‘Suicide is Dangerous’,

but this seems unlikely to happen now.

What This Song Can Teach You –

  • Play ukulele in Bm
  • Play high up the neck
  • Add a recognisable, minor key song to your repertoire
  • Experiment with a classic chord sequence.

Of course, this is the theme tune to ‘M*A*S*H’ but you knew that anyway. This is by far one of my most requested tabs and I can see why. It works really well on the Uke; is instantly recognisable and is sure to bring a tear to your eye. Please let me know if it doesn’t.

It’s easy to be a lazy ukulele-ist and transpose all songs to C/Am. This arrangement will challenge you to play in the less friendly key of Bm. I’ve used two versions of the chord to give you a little push. The higher inversion may challenge the soprano players but it’s still possible. I’ve chosen to use some finger heavy versions of the main chords Em – A7 and D. You don’t have to. It’ll still sound good if you chose the simpler versions.

You’ll find two versions of this ukulele tab. The solo version is suitable for the advancing player. The ‘Lead’ sheet features just the melody. The rhythms can be a little tricky here so make sure you are familiar with the original. Watch my dated video above and enjoy.
