ok random question is this Malaina from Moses Middle School?

MAYONNAISE IS AN INSTRUMENT

No it’s malaria from the evil spy mosquitoes sent to kill the human race

Ned’sChemicalFallOutAtTheDisco

Oh, my mistake. Nice username btw

MayLovesTheUkulele

lol not to turn this into the Can’t Help Falling In Love comment section but your username is noice too

i constantly love his forehead

hey i like how your into the emo trinity
but this song has 26 chords my fingers are swelling

onebigsandwhich

it would be really awesome if in the second verse the chords were there

waffer

that moment when you’re a beginner and in way over your head and you don’t know a good third of the cords in the song 0_0

september !

everytime i play this song my hand just cramps in the middle of it smh

Mollie

It’s not actually that hard, it’s just the number of similar chords that annoys me. Seriously, I started playing ukulele a few months ago (mostly self-taught), and after I read through the chords and lyrics and made sure I could play each chord, I managed it second try with about 2 or 3 mistakes and about 7/8 minutes instead of 6.

Once you get over the sheer number of chords it’s actually quite easy (wrong word, but it’s not hard). I’ve played it maybe six times and can do it with little to no hesitation, and I honestly wouldn’t believe any of this comment if I didn’t know that it was true.

magrp07

yeah the only thing that is pretty tricky is remembering the similar chords and transitioning. but after a while it’s not as bad.

Dmoe

Really?

ur cousin

this was the first song I learned over a year ago. playing it today is much easier due to practice, so if you practice, you can do it! -ur cousin

Bb Gm Cm Too late,_____ my time has come, sends shivers down my spine, F body’s aching all the time. Bb Gm Cm7 Goodbye, everybody, I’ve got to go, gotta leave you all Fm behind and face the truth. Eb Bb Cm Fm Mama, ooh__________ I don’t want to die, Bb Eb I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all.

Am I doing something wrong?

I’m confused, like it gets a little hard in the second part but overall it an not that bad? I mean everyone in the comments it saying that its super hard.

The uke guy

Yeah after practice and more practice it’s a fairly easy song the F7 Ab Gb and Abm might scare new players.

Princess of Erebor

I’ve been playing for 5 years and I’m still scared. Lol

eggster

its the Fm7 that scares us
