  1. I pluck 3132 throughout the whole song. I leave out the Bm in the verse and do the plucking pattern once on D and G. For the chorus I do it once per chord with the Em and G before and after each line (the only chord I play while singing is the D in the chorus and the G and D in the bridge)

  2. any bm alternatives?

  3. 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”.

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

  5. 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 .
