  5. this gives me amanda berry and ariel castro vibessss AHH quirky

  6. i like +5 with a capo on the first fret

  7. I LOVE the MonaLisa Twins version of this song! Check them out on Youtube!

  8. I always play Em instead of C for chord 3. I’m pretty sure that’s what is played in ‘the Jerk’

  9. Instead of playing D7 on moonlight, I personally play and think D sounds better

  10. love the song
    the strumming pattern for the intro is du du du (pluck the second string)
    love it!

  11. so i’ve got it mostly down in +5. but my baby fingers can’t play an Fm.
    any suggestions on something easier that can replace it?

  12. Kusler.Uke

    To me the strumming pattern sounds best as D-D-U-D-D-U

  13. Wolfie101 lover

    Who else wanted to lean because of crankgameplays

  14. I personally like to use G for moonlight instead of g7. It sounds better to me.

  15. i find +5 to be the easiest
    also for me its easier to sing along to as well :)

  16. Juantokillmyself

    What’s the strumming pattern?

  17. What’s the strumming pattern ? ?

  18. Some person

    I find when it is cm it is better as cm7

  19. Instead of playing Cm I play C7
