  1. I think the part with the “C” in the 3rd beat of every line sound a bit too high, does anyone have an alternate?

  2. I can’t stop playing this song! I sing it in the lower octave for ever verse and then go up the octave in the last verse. Same way Miley Cyrus covered it. It’s so beautiful!

  3. Beautiful song, perfect for ukulele! I play with the +2 fingerings on my D-tuned uke so it’s +4 from the original, fitting better in my range.

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

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
