  1. Alternative “e major” chord helps this sound nicer… 1st finger on 2nd fret for top string, others on 4th fret. It’s a personal thing!

  2. Annasucksatuke

    strum pattern ?

    • LipstickInMyValentinoWhiteBag

      DU-DU is what worked for me. Its like the “I’m Yours” strumming patern

  3. Hi thanks for the tabs. I was wondering what does the curvy symbol in the intro and outro mean.

  4. Ukulele_girl_4_lif3!

    I thought it was pretty good although I think it sounds better w/An a at you ou ou

  5. i love tenthumbs!!!☺

  6. How do I play E and also what is a riff I am new to the ukulele and I am still learning

  7. Love this song! Sounds best in -2 though

  8. The verse chords are all mixed up… it doesn’t sound good… in the -2 version, the verse chords are G D G C G D C G

  9. alexa_syd

    -2 sounds better though for sure

  10. alexa_syd

    +3 is easier. It also doesn’t have the E

  11. It sounds nice but yeah I think E is weird.

  12. -2 sounds nice. to me the E is weird.

  13. divergentmai

    i prefer the original riff along with the hammers and pull offs.

  15. Alternate intro riff. Play around with the timing and the hammer ons and pull offs.
