Ok, I kind of figured out the verse and chorus part for this one. I based it off of the version urbangermany did (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYUcX26SYJo&NR=1). It's missing a lot of notes, mainly because the range of the ukulele is pretty limited compared to guitar, but if you've got a better way please post and share!!

I would really like input on figuring out the bridge. I don't know what the hell chords he uses, so any clues would be great. Here's what I got so far:

I didn't tab it but the chords are posted in the description so hopefully you can kind of follow that. Leave me comments, especially if you got something to add! Thanks a lot guys.

Thanks a lot for tabbing that dannyboy - I'm pretty bad at tabbing - takes way too long for me. I realized that I should have shown my other hand in the vid, too. Next time I definitely will. I took the tab you made of the first part and put in what I pretty much do. Hopefully it helps a bit. Thanks again!

That's a pretty nice take on the song you got there michael - sounds good on the uke, but it's a little high (or really low) compared to the versions UG, or even Gabe, does. It's cool though, and the bridge part is close, but still definitely not the type of chord progression used in the original, but still, thanks for helping!!

i really liked it, iono both of yer versions are cool

NukeDOC
01-21-2008, 03:56 PM
i could be wrong, since i havent listened to either version extensively, but the reason it sounds high in mike's version may be because of transposition. could just be he put it together by ear and arranged it in his vocal range.

kinda like my "to be with you video" can you imagine the silly faces i would be making if i tried to hit some of those notes if i played it in the same key as the original song? hahaha. trust me, it wouldnt be pretty.

the way i see it, as long as your transposition is on point, being in a different key is no problem if you are more comfortable vocally in that range. a cover is just a cover, until you do something to it to set it apart. then it becomes your cover. hahaha, how cool would that be... "hey do you know this song? cool lets jam to it. but we'll play it the way nukedoc619 does"

thanks for those who commented or said anything about the vid. ya doc was right i pretty much just made it up out of boredom. its probably high or low or or like a thousand things wrong with it but its ok. it was fun. thanks again guys.

hey markska what kind of uke are you jammin on in the vid?

puremarkska
01-31-2008, 11:57 PM
The uke I used in the video is an old Kamaka concert that's been through a lot. It's not exactly on tune on all the frets anymore. I usually use a Fluke tenor, but I figured since the Fluke fretboard is black and the frets are black, it would be hard for people to see which frets I'm holding. That, and Flukes seem to get no respect.

I think I might make a vid to help change that perception. Hmmm...

ya i seem to notice that too. i guess since it seems to look more like a toy than an instrument. but i heard flukes can sound pretty good. btw, did u get around to making a whole cover of the song? would love to hear it.

yeah markska i think flukes are nice too bad they dont make any models with pick ups but i definately would purchase a fluke, besides they are prolly the only uke makers who have a wide assortment of colors (uke colors)

Haven't gotten around to making the full cover yet, but I think i have a rough version of the bridge down finally. I'm thinking about raising the whole thing a half step, just for singing along purposes. Hopefully sometime soon. And that tamia one.

My fluke's got a pickup. You can order them with. But it's not an active one though, just one of those open air fishmans.

hey mark wuts a fishman pick up? i mean you could still plug the uke in an amp right?

puremarkska
02-02-2008, 02:41 PM
Yeah, Fishman is just the brand name. They're pretty famous for their pickup devices for acoustic guitars. It works pretty well for the Fluke. Only thing is, when you run it through the amp, it's a little soft because it doesn't run on a battery.

Usually the battery adds a lot of excess weight (if you've got an applause with pickup, you know what I mean). I heard that Kala solved this problem by running their pickups on the standard watch-sized batteries. I'm looking to get a Kala next.

Hey sorry about this, I know this was pretty much a dead discussion, but DannyIsViscious on youtube asked about the chords for this.

Chorus:

Adim7 (2323)

they dont really sound correct...

On the first page, dannyboy did a tab and I just tweaked it a little bit to exactly what I play in the vid; so if you read the one I posted, it should be correct. But like I said, I'm not so good with tabs, myself and we didn't add in the timing markers, so hopefully you can read it ok. Shoots

Enough people have asked about this one that I figured I would do a vid just to help out.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMY2C_wtMP8

The tab I posted on page 1 of this thread is the one I used in the video. The tab might not look like that's what I was picking, just because I was holding the chords at the same time. The original video I posted (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ik56KrJIgU) has the chords in the "About this Video" section, so check that out, if you need. Peace.
