  1. Under The Sea Sucks

    Yes, this is an Elvis Presley song, but this version is different chords than the original(at least the one I found) and is simply twenty one pilots’ version of it. It is not wrong of this person to post it as twenty one pilots because they did this version.

    Stay Alive ||-//

  2. HELP ME PLEASE

    what is the strumming pattern can someone tell me

  3. This song is so fun and quite easy to play on my first ukulele (I don’t have experience playing any instrument).
    In the first line at the word “men” I use Em all the time but I have some trouble with my finger placement. Then I found the Em7 which is much easier to play and I can not hear a difference between them. Am I doing something wrong here?

  4. Anything to replace B7? I just can’t get the hang of it!

  5. ukucrazy3000

    Tbh it sounds better if you put a capo on the first fret;)

  6. B7? Plz help.

  7. Josh Dunny (I’m Aussie)

    There has only been one time when I have come on ukutabs and this song not be in #1 spot.

  8. Twentyonedissapointments

    This was a Ukelele cover by twenty one pilots. Its clear to everyone here that the original is by Elvis.

  9. help a clique member out

    what’s the strumming?

  10. abigail k

    jesus christ it’s been one day and the clique is attacking this person. they did not know, please lay off of them :) i’m a clique member as well, just relax brothers. stay alive :D ||-//

  11. oOoo Your welcome :)
    Oooo
    oooo
    oooo

  12. twenty one pilots made the ukulele version of it

  13. what is the a chord

  14. Hi!
    The song is by Elvis Presley (of course, it’s awesome) but Twenty One Pilot made on using a ukulele, which is why it says that, i guess.
    There are also piano version from many other artists, but i do think this is the only ukulele one.

  15. i couldnt do dm7 so i usually just go wth dm which is without the using the pinky, if you keep practising dm youll get the hang of dm7 they also sound very similar

    • I couldn’t do it at first either, but don’t just completely forget about it. Replay the song a lot of times using Dm7 and eventually you’ll get the hang of it. I still have to stop at the parts where Dm7 is used and make sure I play it right, but practice makes perfect! Soon I’ll be able to play it without thinking about it!!

  16. this song sounds so good!
    it is also very easy to play, even for a youngster like me!
    i am a bit of a beginner and i already sound awesome, thanks to this awesome website!

    -a Canadian youngster(lol what??)

  17. BoyfHamilBros_3

    for dm7 I just do dm, it doesn’t change it too much and still sounds nice in my opinion.

  18. Tylerthegoodgay

    the original one but play G instead of G7, Am instead of Em7, and F instead of Dm7

  19. Ukulover

    Hi everyone, first of all, I really love this song, but if you are like me and think the chords are a little off for your own voice, look no farther. Here is my way of playing Can’t Help Falling in Love:

    Chorus:
    D Fm Bm ——– G D A——
    Wise Men Say Only Fools Rush In
    XX G A Bm G———— D A D
    But I Can’t Help Falling In love with you
    Chorus:
    F#m———— Bm F#m————– Bm F#m————–Bm F#m——————–B Em A————–
    Like a River Flows Surely To the sea Darling So It goes Somethings are meant to be

    You can use this pattern for the entire song, only changing the words according to the lyrics. This isn’t necessarily the only chords you should use, but I like these a lot. Use them well……

    • Nah, this sheet is the remake that twenty one pilots did. They remade it for the ukulele and made a proper recording of it as well. It even says bellow that they recreated it. Elvis wrote the song, this is the remake for the ukulele twenty one pilots did.

    • sophie elise

      does anyone have an alternative for B7? thanks x

      • Use the same chord shape and frets as the Em but put it on the E, C, and G string leaving the bottom A string open. It make the Em, B7 progression easier.

        A- open
        E- finger 1 fret 2
        C- finger 2 fret 2
        G- finger 3 fret3

  20. Excuse me, but this song is not from Twenty One Pilots, this song is from Elivis Presley.
    Please fix that error.
    Thanks you.

    • Clownfood

      These are the tabs for Twenty One Pilot’s ukulele cover of Elvis’s original song. Link-> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ThQkrXHdh4

    • Zarasoa Crépin

      It is indeed from Elvis, but the ukulele version (the ones the chords here are based on) is by twenty one pilot. It’s just like all those english version of ‘La vie en rose’. The song is by Edith Piaf, but there is several different uke covers here, on this website, by other artists.

    • Zarasoa Crépin

      The original version is here => https://ukutabs.com/e/elvis-presley/cant-help-falling-in-love-with-you/ <= and as you can see, it's a bit different.

    • 21 pilots did an interpretation and this is their version but there is also one for Elvis’ version on this website

    • this is the twenty one pilots cover version, there’s an elvis version on here too

    • It`s not a mistake. They were recording a cover of this song by Elvis Presley or something.

    • NowWeSitInSilence

      This is a twent one pilots cover, if you can see by the image at the top. No error made, but I can see why you thought that

    • But Twenty one pilots made a cover on Evis Presley’s song ( you can listen to it on YouTube) and the creators of ukulele tabs went with that cover to make chords because Tyler Joseph played ukulele in the cover.

    • Denzell B

      Yeah, this is Twenty One Pilot’s cover of the song.

    • Twenty one pilots created the ukelele version. Thats why they say its by twenty one pilots

    • Fabulous Killjoy

      It’s not by twenty one pilots but Tyler covered it at one point

    • Twenty one pilots covered it so yes this is their version of it, not Elvis Presley’s

    • Ukulelegirlnoshame

      Twenty one pilots did a cover soooo just for that little correction

    • people its elvis’ song, its iconic. But twenty one pilots did a ukulele version of it, which is why it’. under their name,

    • It’s a cover, I’m pretty sure there are other ukulele chord tutorials with the original chords by Elvis.

    • It’s is only the cover by Twenty One Pilots because they have the only ukulele version, but it is Elvis’s song.

    • Elivis originally made it but 21 pilots redid it

    • abigail k

      jesus christ it’s been one day and the clique is attacking this person. they did not know, please lay off of them :) i’m a clique member as well, just relax brothers. stay alive :D ||-//

    • bannnndito

      haha yeah we all know. but twenty one pilots put the amazing song to the amazing uke, so that’s why it says that

    • BrendonsForearm

      Yes, but its a ukulele cover you doof
