  1. it sure diddily is

  2. Sage Wilcox

    The Ab sounds weird but I want to be able to play along with the song so I don’t want to transpose. Anyone have alternative chords that sound better?

  3. I think that it is better to play the c, f and g chords for this song, especially for beginners.

  4. What strumming pattern?

  5. Hannah Jack

    I think it’s “too much candy gonna rot your soul” not “ride”.

  6. Melanie Martinez

    I find that -1 works best

  7. for easier chords in the same key, put the capo on the first fret and play:
    C instead of Db
    F instead of Gb
    continue to play Ab or play G instead

  8. Cai Matthew

    It’s a lot easier in +1 :)
