  • Silvespa says:

  • nancy says:

  • clara says:

    its so easy im playing it to my bro

  • Happy Camper says:

    this is great!! Thankyou!!!

  • epow says:

    Try transposing it down to -2. Sounds a little more pleasant (to me at least)and will be easier for beginners.

  • pidji says:

    I’ve never played guitar or ukulele. So this is my first lesson. And I thought this song would be easy

  • ed hollier says:

    Really nice tablatures but the one with chords isn’t right on a tenor ukulele

  • pianotech13 says:

    This whole song sounds better if you change the G to G7 and lead the last line with a quick Bflat on “Happy”. The progression would read as follows:

    D A
    A D
    D G7
    Bb D A D

    Just finished playing it like this for my husband. Today’s his birthday. It sounded great.

  • fk_ultra says:

    Upgraded the tab a bit, sonds a bit richer to me. and the second chord is now correct.


  • fk_ultra says:

    sorry the tab looks crooked. don’t really know why, will try to reupload without the dashes:

    xA| 0 3 2 | 0 5 3 | 10 7 3 2 0 | 8 8 7 3 5 3 |
    xE| 0 1 | 1 0 | 0 1 1 | 0 0 |
    xC| 0 2 | 2 0 | 0 0 | 0 0 |
    xG| 0 0 0 0 0 | 0 0 0 0 0 | 0 0 0 0 | 0 0 |

  • fk_ultra says:

    got worse (( sorry

  • FlowingWaters says:

    Love this version. Plays and sounds like the real thing.
    Perfect key for me, anyway. Thanks.

  • Arejennings says:

    That doesn’t even sound close? :S

    I did this…

    C- happy birthday to
    G7- you, happy birthday to
    C- You, happy birthday dear
    F- (name)
    G7- Happy Birthday to
    C- you

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

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
