    This song is from foliè a deax

    Hi there. I love these tabs, but I noticed that the album cover and title are wrong. “What a Catch, Donnie” is not from “Believers Never Die” it’s from “Folie A Deux”. It would be really great if this could be changed to avoid confusion. Thanks :)

    • saverockandroll

      it’s still on believers never die and i think believers is the more well-known ‘album’ out of the two, even though it’s a compilation.

  3. Strumming pattern?

  4. so so nice thank you

  5. +5 is easier

  6. I’m not crying. You’re crying.

  7. Marissa364

    If your having trouble with E then I have a better alternative for it, do a D chords but move it up to the 4th fret

  8. anyalikesdogs and bubblegumpop6643:

    This is just my opinion, but I think that the g chord and e chord sound pretty close, the only difference being that the e chord sounds more sad or mellow. Hope that helped!

  9. bubblegumpop6643

    anyalikesdogs:
    I bar the G, C, and E strings on the 4th fret and then get the 7th fret of the A string with my pinkie.

  10. anyalikesdogs

    does anyone know good replacements for the dreaded E chord? thank you so much!

    • rainbowgeese

      I bar the G,C and E stings with my thumb on the fourth fret and use my middle finger to get the A string on the second fret

    • E7 is a lot easier! Just put your first finger on string 4 first fret, second finger on string 3 second fret and your third finger on string 1 second fret

  11. in the chorus, i personally think a chord progression of F, Dm, Am, C works a lot better.

  12. sugakookie

    I love this song so much thankyouuuu ^^

  13. Sooooo good! I love this song :)

  14. Ukulele Wonderland

    love it

  15. sturmanator

    I think that the first line of chorus should go F and then C/E (A 3rd fret, C 4th fret, open other strings)

  16. sturmanator

    I’m so glad that this was finally made, but I still think some chords are missing. I feel like in the first line of chorus “F” suits the first part but something else (I think lower) is necessary to stay true to the song. Also maybe include the three chords that go after the verse before the chorus. Those really make the song. Otherwise, tabbed really accurately and really fun, just those things above will really go a long way!
