Here a particularly shambolic video of ‘The Passenger’ with Iggy Pop and The Stooges from 1977.

The Passenger Ukulele Chords Iggy Pop – There is something really pleasing about this chord sequence! For a start it is fairly simple – perhaps the E7 chord at the end is the only chord new to you. The combination of the rhythm and the chords make it quite recognisable from the start.
Rhythm – perhaps the most challenging factor if you are new to Uke is the strumming. A ‘bar’ of music – commonly splits into beats ‘1 2 3 4’ this can be further split into 8 beats ‘1+2+3+4+’ – with down strums (towards the floor) on beats ‘1 2 3 4’ and up strums on the ‘+’s between the main beats.
The strum pattern for this song starts with an up strum after the first beat followed by a down then up.
The same pattern is repeated after the third beat.
When first practicing it may help to sound the first and thirds beat by tapping your foot. Alternatively – you might want to play a muted stroke – in this case a downstroke with your left hand flat over the fretboard covering the strings so as to produce a ‘chunk’ (rhythmic sound) rather than a chord.
Listen and play along with the audio to get the idea. Instructional video to follow.

Watch and play along to this video which includes on screen lyrics.
