    Default Ingrid Michaelson You and I

    Hello all I've been trying to work out the strum pattern for Ingrid Michaelson's You and I (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=OvMVCHhwTPs) but I'm fairly new at all of this and having trouble so any help would be much appreciated. I found these chords, they're the guitar ones because strangely enough I couldn't seem to find uke ones.

    Intro: C

    C
    don't you worry, there my honey
    F
    we might not have any money
    Am F
    but we've got our love to pay the bills

    C
    maybe I think you're cute and funny,
    F Am
    maybe I wanna do what bunnies do with you,
    F
    if you know what I mean

    C E F C
    Oh, let's get rich and buy our parents homes in the South of France
    E
    let's get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
    F G
    and teach them how to dance
    C E
    let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
    F D
    making everybody look like ants
    C F G C
    from way up there, you and I, you and I


    well you might be a bit confused
    F
    and you might be a little bit bruised
    Am F
    but baby how we spoon like no one else
    C
    so I will help you read those books
    F
    if you will soothe my worried looks
    Am F
    and we will put the lonesome on the shelf


    C E F C
    Oh, let's get rich and buy our parents homes in the South of France
    E
    let's get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
    F G
    and teach them how to dance
    C E
    let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
    F D
    making everybody look like ants
    C F G C
    from way up there, you and I, you and I

    (no guitar)

    oh, let’s get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France
    let's get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
    and teach them how to dance
    let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
    making everybody look like ants
    from way up there you and I, you and I, you and I




    Also if anyone has any tips on learning to determine strum pattern it would be much appreciated. Thanks so much for your help.

    It sounds like she's doing the old D DU UDU strum pattern.

    Also, chords are the same across every instrument. If the music calls for a C on guitar, then you also play a C on ukulele (or piano, or harmonica, or bagpipes, or hurdy gurdy, etc. etc...).

    The E and D in the chords sound like they could be E7 and D7 and apply just a little better

    I agree - E7 and D7 work better here. She also uses variants of F and Am (keep your pinky on the C note while playing them) for a brighter voicing. There's a little bounce between C and Csus7 (hold C and add a finger on the first fret of the E string) at the end.
