    and with -2 instead of the cool riff i’ve just been playing the CM chord and then i pluck the C string, then pluck c3, then pluck c2 (sorry if I wrote that wrong I’m a beginner lol). it doesn’t sound nearly as good but it works alright!

    • lalizzziela

      and i use the g string with all of those instead of like an actual “pluck”, if that makes sense, but keep that natural (?) the whole time.

      • and i play the two-string mini chords up, if that makes sense (sorry for my excessive comments their mostly just for myself lol)

  2. lalizzziela

    I like -2

  3. ukulelelover123

    Very fun to play.

  4. Ruby Richardson

    between each verse I play dm,a7,and F and then building up a g just to fill the gaps between each verse.

  5. i think -2 is sounds pretty good and it isn’t too hard either

  6. alex potter

    riff:
    A -0-0—–
    E -1-1—-1
    C -2-2-0-1-
    G -2-2—–

    you’re welcome

  7. when i play ” come together, right now”, right after the g chord i put an a chord there and it sounds more like the original :)

  8. i like to add a final D at the very end to finish it :)

  9. TO ANY LOOKING FOR THE DODIE/JON VERSION ITS +5 BUT U DO HAVE TO CHANGE THE CHORDS AND I DK HOW TO DO THAT SORRY

  10. If you want to do the riff without picking, you can do F F Bm F D a couple times.

  11. Blackbird

    i just play this

    Dm
    A – – – 8 – –
    E – – – – 10 –
    C 2 2 9 – – –
    G – – – – – –

    A7
    A – – – – – –
    E – – – 8 – –
    C – – – – 9 –
    G 2 2 9 – – –

  12. I’m not sure if it’s 100% correct but I like to do

    A ———————
    E ———–6^(7)—
    C -0-0-5/7——-7~
    G ——————–

    / = slide up
    ^() = bend string to sound like fret in bracket
    ~ = wiggle/bend the string to sound really cool and blues-y

    Again I’m not 100% sure it’s right but it’s super fun to play and sounds cool, plus it’s relatively easy!

  13. A – – – – – –
    E 1 1 – – 1 –
    C 2 2 0h2 – 2
    G 2 2 – – – –

  14. Personally I do the riff

    A – – – – 5 0
    E 1 1 1/4 – –
    C 2 2 – – – –
    G 2 2 – – – –

    but that just me I like the sound that it gives off with the slide
    you can pull off on the 5 0 but I think it sounds better with out

  15. mbbreezyy

    the riff is

    A———————-
    E——–1b*————
    C-2-2——————
    G—-0h2—————

    *hold the and bend to add some flare ;)
