  1. I find that it sounds better if you used:
    DDU UDU UD U U U UDU UDU UDU UDU
    D Am G
    for the intro, verse, and interlude bits. Also during the bridge I change to Am on “want” and the to G on “know” and keep the G for the rest of the line. And for the taxi bit I change to Am on “I’ll” and then to G between “taxi” and “I”.

  2. What version sounds best on a soprano ukulele??

  3. It actually sounds okay in the original key if you leave out the Bm chords completely. I play it like this along with the song and it sounds fine , whether it’s on piano , ukulele or guitar , I’ve tried all ,…..just a little tip if you want .
