Those chords on that thread didn't seem right to me...not saying it doesnt sound nice, just not right :D so I checked up some sites and I got...

Em - Dm7 - Cmaj7 - B7

Stars Fell on Alabama

I would love to have the chords to this for ukulele. I don't care about the solo or tabs, just the chords. I can find it for guitar, but all the versions I've tried don't quite work on uke. Jimmy Buffett's version is awesome. Thank you.

Two I'd love are :
a simplified version of "Sweet Lorraine".
I've found tab/chords, but it's piano transcribed for guitar and not quite right for uke. I could maybe work around it, but it's a song where I have to figure somebody's already figured that out and I can be lazy.

And I'd also love to find tab of Julie London's "Cry Me a River" (not the Justin Timberlake song) with the Barney Kessel guitar parts transcribed for ukulele. That would be very cool. Such a kick ass tune and it would so work....

Pretty much if I'm looking for songs with chords, I go to ultimate-guitar.com and search there, then just use the same guitar chords on the uke haha if it doesnt work out just quite right, I try to find another chord that sounds better. For the most part though, they usually work. :)

I tried them out and I think they work pretty good, I substituted some G chords with F, but only because it sounded right to me.. but I have a bad ear for these kind of things haha

maybe I'll try to figure out Julia's chords. xP I love her. She's a whole bunch of awesome. :)

Thanks Ame

I saw that "Cry Me a River" but I can't seem to make it sound right. I'm not really sure the relationship of those chords to the melody. Maybe I just need to woodshed with it...(Mr. Hobbit is correct. Hubba hubba... the one in his clip from "The Girl Can't Help It" (great movie too) is the arrangement I seek. Barney Kessel is so understated....

but that "Sweet Lorraine" is an entirely different song. I'm looking for a simplified version of the one Nat King Cole (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGthNzZ0nCU&feature=related) did. It's such a great song...

Original tab can be found here (http://www.tabpower.com/s44011.html). . . . but I dunno what C9-5 and C13/G chords look like. C9 is 0301 (probably get away with that) but no C13/G (maybe just the G)?

You can play C9-5 like this: 7069.

That's a 3 chord tune. Tommy James plays it in B. The progression is:

That's a great song, and all of the chords are major, even the 2's, 3's and 6's, which is unorthodox.

| G | B | C | A |
Sittin' in the morning sun, I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
| G | B | C | A |
Watchin' the ships roll in, and I watch them roll away again
| G | E | G | E |
Sittin' on the dock of bay, watching the tide roll away
| G | A | G | E |
Sittin' on the dock of bay, wastin' time

| G | B | C | A |
I left my home in Georgia, headed for the 'Frisco bay
| G | B | C | A |
I have nothin' to live for, look like nothin's gonna come my way
| G | E | G | E |
So I'm just gon' sit on the dock of bay, watching the tide roll away
| G | A | G | E |
Ooh, sittin' on the dock of bay, wasting time

| G D | C | G D | C |
Looks like nothing's gonna change, everything still remains the same
| G D | C | F | D |
I can't do what 10 people tell me to do, so I guess I'll remain the same, yes

| G | B | C | A |
Sittin' here restin' my bones and this loneliness won't leave me alone
| G | B | C | A |
Two thousand miles I roamed, just to make this dock my home
| G | E | G | E |
Now, I'm just gon' sit at the dock of bay, watching the tide roll away
| G | A | G | E |
Ooh, sittin' on the dock of bay, wasting time

| G | G | G | E |
Whistle part...

Seeso, this is awesome, I picked up my uke and strummed this and a smile instantly came over my face... one thing I did notice in this song is that there are some embelishments which I cant quite put my finger on, one of them though is that sometimes in the transition between the C to the A they walk it back like C->B->Bb->A... its a little hard to do quickly unless you play C as 3345

now let me see if I can do this properly... I figured the whistling part from a guitar tab.

|-7-10-7-5------------------------------------7----|
|----------7-5-7-5-7-5----7-5-7-5-7-5----7-5-----|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------0---------------0-----------|

Something like that...

Yeah bro, he does that tasty walk down from the C to the A. Barre chords are best for that for sure.

Your whistle tab looks good too. Try to use the code tags when you type out tabs. It's the number sign button. You also should use an external text editor to get it exact. Use a fixed-width font.

Here, I cleaned it up a bit for you:

Behind the Screams. http://youtube.com/watch?v=mET004HGIE4 This is an acoustic instrumental by CKY that is dieing to be done on ukulele. If you haven't checked this song out you really should. I myself despise all of CKY's music but this song is pure badassery. Someone please figure this out for I don't quite have the talents readily available.

"Heard 'em Say" by Kanye West
"Forever" by Chris Brown
"Guilty Pleasure" by Cobra Starship

I've searched EVERYWHERE for all of these and I'm pretty sure that no one has ever made or sounded out the chords or tabs for these songs.

I think someone will eventually sound out the chords for "Forever," but it's kinda a recent song.

I soak up any and all Jack Johnson I can find and I try to learn as many of his songs as possible. If there's any in particular that you find really fun to play, please let me know!

I've also been telling myself for a long time now that I need to learn more Bob Marley songs, so the same thing goes, if you have some favorites that you like to play it would awesome to get the chords for them.

Peace&Love.

fongie, click on the "User CP" in the tool bar. That listing will show replies to any posts/threads you've made or subscribed to. You can also make post in the "Song Help" forum. As far as the song you're inquiring about, I've done a search and pretty much came up with zilch. Your best bet would probably be to get the lyrics from the video or music source.

There are several different versions (chords) listed here (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/chris_brown_tabs.htm). They're also using the tabs listed in UG which they refer to in the info section.


BUILD ME UP BUTTERCUP PLEASE!!! ive been haveing the hardest time trying to learn this.Have you tried playing along with the video? By doing that you can get the tempo of the song as well as the chord changes. I would concentrate on that first and when you get that part down, then you can try to figure out the picking.

I don't think you were ignored, just overlooked. Anyway, I'm not familiar with the tune but did manage to find a version on UG (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/n/newton_faulkner/straight_towards_the_sun_crd.htm). Looks simple enough up/dwn strum using major chords as well as inversions. Check it out.

Here's what it sounds like to me. I put it a half-step lower so it's easier to play on the uke. Feel free to transpose back up, or use a capo, if you want to play along with the movie:



Intro:

| D7 - - - | - - - - | G - - - | - - - - |


Singing starts:

| D - - - | - - - - | G - - - | - - - - |

| D - - - | - - - - | G - - - | - - - - |

| G - C - | G - D7 - | G - - - | - - - - |

| G - C - | G - D7 - | G - - - | - - - - |

| G - C - | G - D7 - | G - - - | - - - - |

| G - C - | G - D7 - | G - - - | - - - - |

| D - - - | - - - - | G - - - | - - - - |

| D - - - | - - - - | G - - - | - - - - |


Bridge:

| B - F#7 - | B - - - | B - F#7 - | B - - - |

| D - A7 - | D - - - | D - A7 - | D (4 5 rest!) |


(Go back to the G - C part, etc...)


The form of the song is essentially random in that clip. I think they spliced and edited the heck out of it while it's playing in the background, to get the scene to come out right.

In case anyone else would like to horrify their family and friends, here are the words to Hula Hana of Kamana Whala Hula Bay

Who’s this Hula hana, of kamana whala hula bay
She will hula when you have a lovely gift she wants, you’ll hear her say
Bring me a pineapple that doesn't sting a bird that swims a fish that sings, I wanna I really wanna
Bring me a volcano that blows up all the molten jama and a blue banana,
I canna canna
Bring me a pineapple that doesn't sting a bird that swims a fish that sings, I wanna I really wanna,
Bring me a volcano that blows up all the molten jama and a blue banana, I canna canna
And you can wackle all you wanna, while I hula all the day away
And you can wackle all you wanna, while I hula all the day away

All the boys of okakokanoka island, gather all the gifts that hula hana asks
They have combed their island home, fulfilling each one
And its worth it when they watch her shake her grass, three, four, five
Bring me a gentle breeze that I can keep, an ocean that’s oh so deep, I wanna I really wanna
Bring me a volcano that blows up all the molten jama and a blue banana, I canna canna

She will hula when you have a lovely gift she wants, you’ll hear her say
Bring me a pineapple that doesn't sting a bird that swims a fish that sings, I wanna I really wanna
Bring me a volcano that blows up all the molten jama and a blue banana, I canna canna
and you can wackle all you wanna, you can wackle while I walk away,
and you can wackle all you wanna, you can wackle while I walk away, away, away, away

This is not the easiest song in the world for someone new to playing the ukulele. But if you just play a normal strum pattern and don't worry about the fingerpicking for right now, it shouldn't be too bad. Most of the song is just variations on a few chord sequences.

I've written it a half-step higher than the recording. Either sing it that way, or tune your uke down a half-step to F# B D# G# (that's probably what the guitarist does in the song).



Intro:

| G - - - | D/F# - - - | Am - - - | Am - G/B - |

| C - - - | Eb+ - - - | Em - - - | C#m7(b5) - - - |

| Cmaj7 - - - | - - - - |


Verse:

| G - - - | D/F# - - - | Am - - - | Am - G/B - |

| C - - - | Eb+ - - - | G - - - | - - - - |

| G - - - | D/F# - - - | Am - - - | Am - G/B - |

| C - - - | Eb+ - - - | Em - - - | C#m7(b5) - - - |

| Cmaj7 - - - | - - - - |


Pre-Chorus: ("I have been holding my breath...")

| Am - G/B | C - - - | C(add9) - - - |

| Am - G/B | C - - - | C(add9) - - - |

| Am - G/B | C - Eb+ - | Em - - - | C#m7(b5) - - - |

| Cmaj7 - - - | - - - - |


Chorus #1: ("You're painting daffodils...")

| Am - - - | Am - G/B - | C - - - | Eb+ - - - |

| G - - - | D/F# - - - | Am - - - | Am - G/B - |

| C - - - | Eb+ - - - | Em - - - | C#m7(b5) - - - |

| Cmaj7 - - - | - - - - |


Repeat Verse
Repeat Pre-Chorus


Chorus #2:

| Am - - - | Am - G/B - | C - - - | Eb+ - - - |

| Em - - - | - - - - | C#m7(b5) - - - | - - - - |

| Cmaj7 - - - | C(add9) - - - |


Bridge ("I would give away...")

| Am - - - | Am - G/B - | C - - - | - - G/B - |

| Am - - - | D - - - | F - - - | C - - - |

| D - - - | D7 - - - | F - - - | C - - - |

| D - - - | D7 - - - |


Repeat Pre-Chorus
Repeat Chorus #1


Outro: ("Last night...")


< G > < D/F# > < Am >


Suggested chord voicings:

Eb+ 0332
C#m7(b5) 0102
C(add9) 0005 (optional... you could just play a plain ol' C there)
F 2013
D7 2020

As is often the case on the ukulele, the bass note of all the "slash" chords here can be ignored:

D/F# 2220
G/B 0121

Hey ya'll,

I've been trying to figure this song out, but I haven't been having any luck :( It seems like it should be really simple.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Moloko- I Want You (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfMb1zo_QDY)


I Want You
by Moloko

I want you
though you dare to deny it
I'm always reminded of you
and the more you forbid me
the more I need you to give me

Morning comes upon us to impose another day
but I might try to force myself to sleep.
Why should I face up to another waking day
when there's a chance you'll come to me in dreams?
The world just keeps right on turning anyway
While I stay home and watch that shadow play
Innocence is lost into the dark
If I were dynamite would you provide the spark?

I want you
though you dare to deny it
I'm always reminded of you
and the more you forbid me
the more I need you to give me

I don't know what to do
though you dare to deny it
I am always reminded of you
and the more you forbid me
the more I need you to give me

If only you could see my life and turn it inside out
My heart just keeps attacking me; always in my mouth
and if my skin were glass, my love, you would see
A heart that keeps on beating only in the hope that you'll return
to me


Thanks!!

I dont know if this fits into this category but I have been playing a song I wish I could unlearn.

(Bowing my head in shame)

I was playing around with a few things on my uke last night and found a pretty nice sounding melody. I was pretty psyched about it.

As I played it for about a minute or so I realized...I was playing a Barry Manilow song...Cant Smile Without You. :eek:

If I didnt have my uke in my hands I surely would have shot myself in the face with a bazooka. :p

...just goes to show ya...everything sounds better on the uke.

If it helps any:


Barry Manilow didn't write it
He wasn't the first to record it either. The Carpenters did it a couple years before him.
The Carpenters kick ass... I don't care what anybody says! :cool:

But thanks.
it's like his song now.
Quite similar to "Crazy."
Most think it is a Patsy Cline song when it's really a Willie Nelson tune.

Don't even get me talking about the capt and tenille song I stumbled on to. :eek::p

E Am E B
Every time you do that thing you do

Verse 2
E A B E
I . . . Know all the games you play
A B C#m F#
And I'm gonna find a way to let you know that
F#m A B
You'll be mine some day

E A B E
'Cause we . . . Could be happy can't you see
A B C#m F#
If you'd only let me be the one to hold you
F#m B
And keep you here with me

Chorus 2
C#m F#
Cause I try and try to forget you girl

E E7 A Am
But it's just so hard to do
E Am E
Every time you do that thing you do

(Ascending bass line F#-G-G#)

Bridge
A C#m
I don't ask a lot girl, But I know one thing for sure
F#
It's your love I haven't got girl
B C B
And I just can't take it any more

Solo (Verse chords)
E
A B E
A B C#m F#
F#m B

Verse 3 (2nd half of verse 2)
E A B E
'Cause we . . . could be happy can't you see
A B C#m F#
If you'd only let me be the one to hold you
F#m B
And keep you here with me

Chorus 3
C#m F#
Cause it hurts me so just to see you go
E E7 A Am
Around with someone new
E Am
And if I know you you're doin' that thing

This one is a really really tall order, but I'm a huge les claypool fan and I've found a lot of the chords to his songs but never any of the more interesting bits, I've tried transposing from his bass tabs at bass tab archive (which isnt listing them right now because of some legal idiocy) and also transposing them from already transposed guitar tabs, like http://www.chordie.com/chord.pere/www.xguitar.com/guitar-tabs/primus/rhinoplasty/amos_moses.txt but I epicly fail at transposing and nothing comes out right. But then again transposing from bass to ukulele sounds a little sacrilegious and maybe just was never be meant to happen.

Other than that, chords to any jacob borshard songs would be pure hotness, I've already got "Grass stains" (minus the solo) and figured out my own for "He kept painting" Any help is appreciated (including if you could get me a link to transposing tips) Once again, both of these aren't going to be 5 seconds google searches, probably more like month long sit downs, but I figured I'd take a shot in the dark.

Unless he's using a different tuning (D = A, D, F#, B), the shapes will be different. Sopranos can be tuned either D or C (G, C, E, A) and concerts are usually tuned to C, same as a tenor.

This kid seems to have it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGNcEE0HVcw but as I'm relatively new to the Uke I can't work it out.

Thanks =]

Looks like F, Dm, A, G, Bbm7, C. There's one chord in there towards the end, I think it's an Am+7 (1003) which he slides up to the 5th fret. I dunno if it's completely right but try it out and see how it plays.
