    amazing and accurate

  • denisse says:

    So many new rab songs… I’m going to cry…

  • Jbob_kober says:

    Great song, key is definitely not right though

  • None of your buisness says:

    This sounds a little out of key… Any suggestions?

  • Tyler is my Dunshine says:

    This is my favorite twenty one pilots song and Ive heard from Drown (No phun intended) to Implicit demand for proof, to Lane boy, to trees, and this is still my favorite!!

  • pepperheidi says:

    The right key is having the verses be C, Am, and Em, instead of D, Bm, and Gbm:
    C Am Em
    Ruby I hope I see you, I’ve waited all this week
    C Am Em
    For you to walk my way, your soul will capture me

    then continue that until the next verse, where it’s:
    F Am G C G F
    You’re an angel fallen down, won’t you tell us of the clouds
    (F) Am G C G
    You have fallen from the sky, how high? how high?

    then, to add the little riff part of the piano in the song, play:
    C Am Em
    You’re true and pure

    and then after Em move your finger on the A string to the first fret and back twice.
    like this:

    A|3–3–0–0–2–2–1-2-1-2-|
    E|0–0–0–0–3–3–3-3-3-3-|
    C|0–0–0–0–4–4–4-4-4-4-|
    G|0–0–1–1–0–0–0-0-0-0-|

    Hopefully that helped anyone who needed it :)

  • Twenty_One_Pilates says:

    I literally cried when I saw how many RAB songs were on here… Not kidding

  • ViceandVirtue says:

    For a little added affect after “You’re true and pure” verse, you can add this on every other line: On the A string, go from the 1st fret to the 2nd in a syncopated rhythm.

  • clique as frick says:

    If you want the intro it is
    A|3-7-2-3-7-7
    E|———–
    C|———–
    G|———–
    Hope this helps :)

  • Ruby says:

    I was super stoked when I found this song, as my name was a twenty one pilots song and now I’m super happy to be able to play it. Thanks!

    • lifes.hopeful.undertone says:

      my birthname is in holding onto you and even if i don’t always go by that name i was still happy to find it on here

  • Molly says:

    for the chorus i use DDUUDU and on “of” i go to G the on clouds i go to F :))
    the rest i use D DDU

  • lifes.hopeful.undertone says:

    +5 looks to be the easiest

  • Smøl Bean says:

    Is there an alternative chord that anyone uses instead of Bm because I find the fingering for that chord to be difficult

    • Flowerstories says:

      I wouldn’t know of an alternative chord, but if you’re struggling with Bm I suggest you bar the second fret with your first finger and then put the second or third finger onto the fourth fret on the G string. In my opinion that makes the chord easier to play.

    • Hannahrosie6 says:

      If it helps i bar the second fret and my thumb on the 4th fret g string. Just keep practicing i swear!

  • AllyXD says:

    On the you’re true and pure for -5 you could use C instead of G it sounds a little better like that

  • You'll see me says:

    When I pressed the 0 on the pitch changer thing, it changed into the right key… I don’t know if it’s just me or if yours does that too?…

  • Addict with a ukulele says:

    If you’re struggling with the Bm chord or if it doesn’t sound right, just click the 0 again and it will change it into the right pitch (which conveniently doesn’t have bm)

  • ELLIE says:

    I transposed to -5 and put a capo on the second fret it sounds cool

  • K says:

    did they fixed the chords?

  • Trashy Boi says:

    I found a good strum pattern. D DUDUD

  • smiles for miles says:

    heh that’s weird. after reading complaints about the key, i switched back to 0 and it was all corrected lolol. on one of my favourite covers of this, they strum dduudu :)

  • Boopdeedoop says:

    I just played G instead of Em. It sounds better to me anyways. Hope that helps!

  • Boopdeedoop says:

    This was after I transposed it to – 5

  • Addict With A Fanfiction says:

    It repeats “Tell our dad I’m sorry” more times than listed. This wouldn’t bother me, but the number of times isn’t even close.

  • regional_at_melanie says:

    such an easy song to learn 😝

  • TaxiCabHometown says:

    Happy day after Tyler’s birthday!!!

  • Kay says:

    A| 3–7–2——3–7–7 x2

    A | ———0 —————————————0—
    E | ——0——0——————0—0———0—
    C | —————2—2—2—0————————
    G | 0–0 ——0———————0——0–0——0

    A | ——————————
    E | —0—————0———
    C | ——2–2–2–0——2–0
    G | —————————— x2

    If you want a simple riff of the intro and verse, this is a pretty easy one I came up with <3
