  1. regional_at_melanie

    Tyler plays it like Am Dm C E

  2. When you realize its actually “Message, man” like message comma man not
    Message-Man

    Your welcome for ruining your lives as my friend did mine

  3. the strum pattern I use is:
    D D UDU

    work on the rhythm and it sounds like how Tyler plays it in the Message Man Sleepers video

  4. -5 is the easiest for me

  5. can someone please tell me the chords and strumming pattern for the bridge/rapping from the sleepers version? i just listen to it and it seems like its only like 2 notes and a different strumming pattern.

  6. wefindourworthingivingbirthandstuff

    for anyone trying to play the sleepers version: Tyler usually uses a different E chord (4-4-4-7) and it’s easier to play if you bar the 4th fret and then put your pinky on the 7th fret of the A string

  7. twentytwoaircrafts

    If anyone’s wondering, the sleepers chords are: Am, Dm, C, E :)

  8. For the sleepers version just transpose it down 5 :)

  9. KG02Ukulele

    I use dddudu during the chorus and the second part of the rap

  10. ur name is not blurryface ugh!

    Myyyy song

  11. If you want to play the sleepers version its Dm, Am, C, and then an E chord but the E that’s 4,4,4,7. i just watched tylers hands and listened super intently because this one sounded off from what he played

  12. Possibly Frank Iero's Doppelganger

    This song reminds me of Rick and Morty, mostly of Rick because…..well watch the show and listen to this
