Classical Gas is more of a song suitable as solo instrumental, than a song you can strum chords along to. There a lot of spots taht you can changes and play with the tempo. Even going rubato for sections.
I use a lot of triads when playing this song. Some cool arrangements can be discovered just doodling around on the ukulele with triads.
