  1. @vulturevinyl

    truce is gold today.
    truce deserves it.
    vessel deserves it.
    twenty one pilots deserve it.

    stay alive, cause this clique means so much.

  2. Clikkies ftw

    After the first line in the chorus, I pluck the A string going from frets 7-5-3-5 bc it sounds like the real song.

  3. chicken.father

    thankfully she found help and is doing a lot better now. <3

    • I changed the B to a D7 I think it sounds better. Also i just play G D7 C D and Em I think is easier to sing it that way. I play a normal DDUUDU

  4. WeAllNeedYouNow

    I put it to +5 and changed the E to an Em, its a hecc of a lot easier and, personally, sounds really pretty! Its very good for beginners that want to learn the song! <3

    ~ Stay alive |-/

  5. I played this and hurt my finger and I have an audition tomorrow and I have to play the piano
    Somebody heLP

  6. chicken.father

    So this is little longer than a normal comment, but i just need to post it here cuz yeah.

    TRIGGER WARNING:::: Okay so pretty much I have this amazing friend who honestly means the world to me. She has always been there for me no matter what. Lets just call her “Sawyer.” Sawyer and I have been SOOOO close from since first grade. But ever since 5th grade she’s just been acting off. she finally opened up to me about what has been going on in her life. Sawyer basically explained to me that she has been depressed since the beginning of the year. she said she felt worthless like nobody cared about her. This just led me to crying, because she told me how she wanted to “end it all.” sawyer and I cried and hugged, then cried some more. I played this song for Sawyer an she told me recently that one action stopped her from “Ending it’

    Thank you for saving my friend.. :’)

  7. What I do is through the whole song I pluck G and A strings at the same time and then C and E strings at the same time but the last chord of the song I strum once.

  8. Twentyønepiløtsmakeuscry

    If you only strum downwards on each chord it sounds great. Also D instead of Gb works nicely

  9. theeighteenthpilot



    • theeighteenthpilot

      Strum up, up through whole song. I added C..G at the end-

      Stay alive, stay alive, for me

      – strum C down, up. & G down,up.

  10. Kai Can Levitate

    okay so when you play it, if you want it to sound more similar to the actual piano in the song, play it with the same chords but pluck 2-3-4-3 through the entire song :)

  11. I don’t claim to have ever written any ukelele songs or tabs, but I got a very basic plucking pattern down for the first line that you can replicate on similar verses. Make the shape of the chord with one hand and pluck strings in the order shown with the other. The strings of the ukelele are G-C-E-A and are numbered as 1 = G, 2 = C, 3 = E, and 4 = A. Pluck them to the beat of how Truce is played.

    Now the night is coming to an end
    2-3-4 (G) 2-3-4 (B) 2-3-4 (C) 2-3-4 (G)

    Ooh-ooh-ooh oooh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh- ooh
    2-3-4 (Em) 2-2-3 (Em) 4 (C) 3-4 (G)

  12. Use D instead of Bb, as others have said. I’ve tried it before it’s a lot prettier.

  13. I think Gbm is better than Gb here, just try

  14. TØP Click RLUES

    D is better than Gb in two ways: 1 it sounds way better, 2 it is easier to play. Take my advice!

  15. mcr is dead

    i love this song so much but are there any replacements for Gb?

  16. BcawJoseph

    sounds nice if you strum down on all strings one by one then did C-E-C-E between each one.
    brings me to tears

  17. alexander.hamandswiss

    The Gb in the chorus sounds better when played as a D, but otherwise great tab!!! I’m playing it by plucking 2-3-4-2-2-3-4 on the chords but any way sounds beautiful :)
