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

AnnUkulele

You can watch a video on it

Lyd

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 ?

SamalamaEuph

For the “Can’t you see that it’s just raining” I use the 3rd riff. That’s where it is supposed to be used.

NeoTenic

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”

AnnUkulele

I love this song so much!

minicy

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 :)

Lilian Rey

Whats the 3 riff for? I don’t understand were you need it.

Anonymous???

For strumming I use DU *chuck* UU *chuck* UU *chuck* UU

sammie

Anyone know the strumming pattern for this?

Ashe Conten

I do DD*chuck for the whole song

hay.grace

easiest is -5
