  1. brotato chip

    okok do D D DU x2 for each cord its what they do in the real song at the beginning with the muted strings and its really easy and sounds nice :)

  2. robins biggest fan

    +1 is so much easier and sounds just as great. also robin is my smol bean and i am so happy to have more songs by him on here :))

  3. owie my hands

    does anyone know replacements for.. uh… eery chord? lmao i have smol child hands

  4. Redrock114

    Strumming Pattern:

    D(Pause)D D UUU DDU
    Play this twice for every chord shown on the lyric sheet

  5. Cavetown stan

    We stan

  6. anybodyhaveamatt

    For something easier, swap Db for C, Dbm for Am, Gb for F and Ab for G (I personally found this made the song easier to play, but perhaps that’s just me)

  7. just some kid

    -1 is the correct one btw

  8. Putting a capo on the first fret makes the whole song easier to play. Then you can play C on Db, am on Bbm, F on Gb and Ab kinda stays the same. It sounds like the song and it’s way easier to play (except for Ab)

  9. A big mess

    What’s the strumming pattern?

  10. You can put a capo on the first fret and the whole song is easier to play. If you put a capo on the first fret then you play Am instead of Dbm, C instead of Db, F instead of Gb, and G instead of Ab.

  11. +1 is what it’s supposed to be

  12. UkuleleChild

    -1 is easier!!!

  13. whats the strum pattern??

  14. certifiedtaquitos

    -1

  15. FreddieMercury12

    Thank you!!!

  16. This songs is amazing and I’m glad to have more CaveTown songs :)

  17. FrickFrackPaddyWhack

    I think if you just play C-Am-F-G it’s a lot easier and sounds good too but these are also amazing.
