    This sounds so pretty and calming on ukulele, but the actual recording of Death Valley is completely different…

  2. i do the strumming with chucking so i do DCUUCUUCUUC or 1 (+) 2 + 3 + 4 +

  3. what is the strumming pattern???

  4. has anyone figured out a good strumming pattern?

  5. For those interested, the original key of the song is actually the half step below this. Great tab though!

  6. No, it´s actually ´´Alive, here in death valley´´ :)

  7. PatrickStumpIsMyFather

    I thought it was we are alone here in Death Valley

  8. Jesse Norwood

    I played the last chorus twice and added the interlude to the end 4 times and slowed it down at the end. It sounded pretty okay.

  9. PeteTheBassist

    It sounds better if you play the second interlude (before the last chorus) three times instead of two.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
