“Take a Whiff on Me” (Cocaine Habit Blues) – Cigar Box Ukulele Lesson from One-hand Dan Russell

This old American blues/folk song was recorded by Alan Lomax and first published in 1934. It has been recorded and released by a number of folk singers over the years, including The Byrds, Old Crow Medicine Show, Woodie Guthrie, Jerry Garcia and even the Flying Burrito Brothers!

In this video lesson, One-hand Dan Russell shows you how to play this great old song on the cigar box ukulele.

Here are the chords you’ll need to play it. Dan shows you the progression and sings the melody for you in the video. Note: In the video the chord form for D7 actually shows D flat 7 – be sure your first finger is barring on the second fret, not the first fret and you’ll be OK.
