  1. The Ukulele Teacher has a good tutorial on youtube with cool strumming

  2. hi i like paramore nice to meet you

    For those of you who are here after the Ukulele Teacher tutorial, -3 with a capo on the 3rd fret is how he did it. ;)

  3. Not lying I stg I did ,,

    I commented as josh dun lmaooooooo follow my Instagram @blurredtylerr c:

  4. Hayley Williams

    dids_x actually it’s fine, not find.

  5. If you click on +1 and then go back to 0 the chords are really accurate

  6. Parawhore

    Awwwww they don’t have Taylor’s part where he sings into a vocalizer

  7. kxylxclow13

    What does the dashes around the chords mean? (ex. -Cm-)

  8. Taylor Uke

    I think that the intro sounds like this (don’t take my word for it though I’m not sure if I was in tune)

    A | – – – – – – – | – – – – – | – – – – – | – – – – –
    E | – – 1 – 3 – | – – 2 – 0 | – – 1 – 3 | – – – – –
    C | – 0 – 0 – – | – 3 – 3 – | – 0 – 0 – | – 3 1 5 1
    G |- – – – – – – | – – – – – | – – – – – | – – – – –

  9. imselftitled

    Gm* idk where I got Eb from

  10. imselftitled

    +4 is easier if you’re having trouble with Eb or Bb

  11. it says wake up to FIND not fine

  12. @josh dun
    me too

  13. -3 with a capo on fret 3 is easiest :)

  14. aaahahah

    i’m ninety nine percent sure that’s not in key. to make it easier and actually IN key, press “-1” and put a capo on the first fret. it sounds super good.

  15. -3 is easy to play and sing

  16. Josh dun

    I love this band and song . And Tyler Joseph
