Someone told me long ago there s a calm before the storm,
  Db                     Gb
I know; it s been comin for some time.

When its over, so they say, it ll rain a sunny day,
  Db                      Gb
I know; shinin down like water.

Yesterday, and days before, sun is cold and rain is hard,

  2. Spagoodiboi

    Its the tablature for certain parts i think, set up with each line of dashes being a string and the numbers being the frets to be held down

  3. what do those dashes with numbers and stuff mean im new to ukelele and i have no idea

  6. Hi all. In my opinion the entry riff goes like the following:

    xA|–3-0—3-
    xE|—-3-0-0-
    xC|——2-0-
    xG|——–0-

    Let me know what you think…

    • Trying again (not so experienced with writing tabs):
      xA|- – 3 – 0 – – – – – 3 –
      xE|- – – – – 3 – 0 – – 0-
      xC|- – – – – – – – 2 – 0 –
      xG|- – – – – – – – – – 0-

  7. Beautiful!

  8. I understand the chords, what’s the deal with the a e c g is that for the notes? Or the melody? How do you work it or where can I go to learn to use it, thanks

  9. I like to use C7 as a transition chord from the verse to the chorus. So it goes C C7 F … This kind of transition (I Idom7 IV) works well in many other songs too

  10. I know this song and it sounds great but as my name suggests “Im a noob” so I mangle it by accident.

  11. Krayzzzf00l

    ^^^^Ok, there was supposed to be spaces between my notes, but I guess I got denied… lol

  12. Krayzzzf00l

    Awesome tab! I however, in the course, like to play it like this…

    F G C G AM G
    I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?

    It just sounds smoother to me that way :)

  13. my opinion. add another pluck to E before plucking 3rd fret E at the end, sounds groovier. ooo bum dum dum bum doooo
