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

  • Krayzzzf00l says:

    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 :)

  • Krayzzzf00l says:

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

  • Ukulelenoob says:

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

  • Uke0048 says:

    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

  • Cjwest says:

    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

  • Junebug says:

    Beautiful!

  • Elad says:

    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…

    • Elad says:

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

  • Kayl says:

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

    this is what i prefer in the beginning and end
