TwentyoneVanderWaalLemonboys

I find +3 the easiest to play tbh

A human person

I replaced Gb7sus2 with D if that helps

I replaced it with Dbm

Katalina

Strum pattern??

Ukulele

Accurate, but hard.

Daggur

honestly just ignore the A Asus2 part, just play A. it makes it so much easier to follow

Mariyam.uku.X

What does the phrase “put my money in my mouth” acc mean?? :/

Cavekenz

It means eat my money :)

SadBoiUkulele

“It’s the perfect time to put my money in my mouth, chew it up and spit directly on the ground.”

I think that it means that he’s wasting his money on useless stuff, so that he’s basically wasting it. It’s similar to the saying ‘To pour one’s money down the
drain.’

I think this especially because of the next line after this. “Make some plans I’ll never get to.”

Ukulele

I would think it means not caring about the value so just using it for granted. At least that is how I interpret it.
