  1. I find a good replacement for B7 is Bbm, Em7 is Em, and Dm7 is D

  2. Idontknowhowbuttylerfoundme

    If you can’t play Dm7, Dm works just as well. That’s what I did in the beginning. This was my first song I ever played on the uke. For B7, that just takes a lot of practice. If this is your first tiime ever playing, you play it by baring the chord, meaning 1 finger layed down on all strings. It makes your hand cramp at first but you’ll get used to it. the first time you play it will buzz mostlikely, that just means you aren’t pressing hard enough. Keep at it, you’ll get there eventually. It took me 3 hours to get it right the first time, it just takes patience. Once you can bar a chord you can do anything. I suggest practicing by only holding 2 strings down, then 3, then 4. I hope this helps!

    i think anyone can play this song if they want to. this is the first song i learned to play on my ukulele when i got it for christmas and it really wasn’t hard to play, i don’t think you should say that “this is not a song for beginners” or that if “you can’t play the B7 chord you shouldn’t play it.”

  4. lol Tyler didn’t write this song??

    *IIIIIII caaaant hellllp fallling in looooove wiiiith youuuuu.

  6. oh haha I know an easier way to play B7 actually, you just need to put your middle finger flat on the second row (cover all) and your ring finger in the third-row third string (counting from the right). It might sound weird at first but just keep trying, and you also need to press on the strings really hard in order to get the sound right!! Hope it works for you!

    I’ve only been playing my ukulele since Christmas and I just learned this today. I can actually sing and play with this song. I love it.

  8. Weeeeell, im a beginner and the chord most hard is Dm7, B7 is so easy :0

    (I speak spanish, sorry)

      Dm7 is not the worst. It may be hard to shift to in this song, but it is easier than most barre chords, including B7. Sorry sister.

    • Alternate B7 fingering: same hand shape as Em, just move all fingers up 1 string. It leaves the A string open instead of the G string, puts the 7th on the open A string, and it’s the exact same voicing as the barre chord.

    IM NOT YOUR FRIEND ;)

  11. I personally use a normal g chord over the g7 but it sounds pretty either way so like who can complain?

  12. DDUUDU is the strumming pattern i used

  13. What is the strum pattern?

  14. Figgy Wiggy Woo

    This song is very close to my heart, and it was easy for me to learn it thanks to this tab!

  15. I liked it better using the strumming pattern D D U U D U better than single strums. It adds more rhythm. I’ve been playing ukelele for a little bit over a year, and I’m not the best, but I play for fun. Good luck guys❤️❤️

  16. Supernatural1967

    All I can think of when I hear or play this song is Twist and Shout. The Supernatural fandom knows what I’m talking about.

  17. You can replace all of the E chords and A chords by just playing C, G, C, F, C, G, at the beginning.

  18. corgitime4321

    I love this song. It sounds better with the ukulele then by itself.❤️

  19. Red Patches

    It’s really easy to hit the g string note with your thumb and using your ring finger for the c string and the pointer finger and middle finger on the e and a string. It;s a kinda complicated note, but using your fingers that way really helps. Good luck friend!

  20. If anyone needs help with the chord B7 I read of your first finger over the second fret (refer to the image at the top) you can use your first finger over the first two stings ||(||) these two (pretend they are ukulele strings hah. The ones closest to the floor for clarification) your second finger on the top first sting (|)||| and then your third finger on the third fret second string |(|)|| I hope this helps because I had trouble with it I just find this easier
