  1. At the lyric “Do we really need to pay attention to the alarm,” it sounds better if you descend from Em (“really need to”) to Gaug (“pay attention”) then C7 instead of C “to the alarm, wake up…” and then resolve to G on “slow”

  2. For the strumming pattern, I use..

    D U *Chuck* U

    (Called the chucking pattern and you can look it up on YouTube if you don’t know how to chuck)

    And then when a line like,

    “Pretend it’s like the weekend now”

    I strum D U D U on now.

    I think this works pretty well, but you can change it to how you like it… hope I helped ?

  3. Anyone know the strumming pattern for this?

  4. easiest is -5

  5. I love this song so much!

  6. So is there anyone else that has no idea/know how to do the riffs? pls help ;;

  7. why cant I see the tabs anymore??

  8. --Peridot--

    this song was my childhood.. im gald i can play it now =^.^=

  9. What’s the strumming pattern for this song??

  10. Great song, I recommend, at the end, staying on the Am until you play “slow”, and strumming the G as you say the last word. Feels like a cleaner ending :)

  11. wonderfulchoochoo

    is it odd to say that this song feels like a warm hug?

  12. The original is in -2

  13. I think riff 3 can be played on the “Ain’t no need ain’t no need” and “can’t you see can’t you see” parts followed by riff 2

  14. I’m actually surprised at how well I’m doing with this. I just my first ukulele 5 days ago, and now I’m trying this. Wish me luck!
    And thanks for doing this, whoever did it!

  15. It should be a G7 after riff 2.

  16. bryantanner

    I like to replace Am with Em.

  17. heatherann85

    As a girl, it’s easier to sing at +5.

  18. Love the tab – curious about where riff 3 fits in though :(

    • AwesomeFlamingo

      When I play the song, I’ll go through riff 1 and 2 twice, but the second time i’ll use riff 3 instead of riff 1.

    • There’s this bit at the start of the song with all the riffs where you cn go can go rif 1, am7, rif2, g7, rif 3, am7 and then rif 2, g7 and then hit em with a d7 before smoothly and effortlessly moving into the rest of the song. At least, tat is how I like to do it :)

  19. awesome chords and tabs for this song, at first before a found these chords i was playing it a different way, but this sound better ‘;)
