  1. twist and shout :,(

  2. Addiesonson

    Another way to play B7 is basically Em but move your fingers over one string if that makes sense. It sounds exactly the same c;

  3. transposing to -5 kinda makes it easier if you need it!

  4. Regular D also sounds ok instead of Dm7

  5. I have been waiting to play this. Hopefully my girlfriend will like it

  6. IbbyCantType

    I like to use a normal B instead of B7, mostly because I find it easier. Also, with the river part, make sure you’re in a steady beat, otherwise I find I can go off course.

  7. I play the ending part like:

    F G Am F C G7 Am<– creates that tension/sadness
    Cause I can't help falling in love with you
    F G Am F C G7 C <— sense of finality :)
    Cause I can't help falling in love with you

  8. ohmypancakes

    B7 is kinda hard for me to play… any suggestions for a different chord that would still sound good?

  9. G7 is really similar to G, and its actually a bit easier. It does sound different tho, so don’t change it unless you absolutely have to.

  10. You can play an Am instead of a C on the second last line, last note, to make it flow better into the last line

  11. Kye it’s played on a concert by Tyler but you could still play it on a soprano.

  12. so be it it's rocknroll

    B7 is kinda hard for me to play… any suggestions for a different chord that would still sound good?

    • An easier, alternate way to play a B7 chord is with third finger on 4th fret of G string, second finger on 3rd fret of C string and first finger on 2nd fret of E string. Basically like an Em chord but shifted over one string each finger. Hope that helps!

    • It’s a lot easier and sounds the same if you just bar the second fret and play the other note as normal. same thing with G if you bar the two notes on the second fret.

  13. currently sobbing bc of twist and shout

    i can dig elvis.

  14. singing*

  15. Learning this song, dining it to my girl. And going to go on the beach and play the ocean boy while playing this.

  16. Is this played on a soprano or concert? Soprano right?

  17. the g7 is actually just g. it’s how he plays it in the video

    • That’s true although at the bottom it says that this is the author’s own work.

      • Never challenge me i love nutella more than any one else in the world. even more than you….

    • Misamoosa

      Kendall-

      Okay, sorry to say this..but G7 and G are both different. The G7 is more of a flat key and the G is natural. If on your ukulele you play both notes listen super close and you will hear the difference.

      -An uke player

      • What about transition for this lines. I having a hard time doing it.

        Em B7 Em7 A7 Dm7 G7
        Darling, so it goes, some things are meant to be

      • Replace that Em7 with A7 and you will get it.

        In the video, you can see that Tyler goes from B7 straight to A7, and never plays any Em7.

    • Row row row your boat

      I love this song to the moon and back and more

  18. if youre struggling with g7 and em7 regular g and em will sound just fine (:

  19. yes yes yessss love

  20. YAY I was waiting for this version to come out!
