I just saw this Youtube video of Chris Brown's With You, and thought it was awesome, but couldn't figure out the chords because they weren't zoomed in and the uke was at an angle. And I'm not good enough to just be able to tell by ear. Can anyone help shed some light on the chords?

And even if you can't tell me the chords for With You, what are some other good R&B songs to learn. I already learned Bed after watching Aldrine's video, and am looking for more.

The song is actually in Eb, but they're playing it in D in that video. And yes, the ukulele's out of tune.

I got these chords from:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/c/chris_brown/with_you_ver5_crd.htm

They seem to be the chords that the dude in the video is using.

Dsus4
I need you boo, (oh)
A7sus4
I gotta see you boo (hey)
G
And the hearts all over the world tonight,
A
Said the hearts all over the world tonight

[Verse 1]
Dsus4
Hey! Little mama,

A7sus4
Hot..little figure,

A
You're a class all your own
And..
Dsus4
Oh, little cutie

You're my sweetheart
G

You are one of a kind and..

[Bridge]

Oh! I'm into you,
A7sus4
And girl, no one else would do,
G
'cause with every kiss and every hug,
A
You make me fall in love,
Dsus4 A7sus4
And now I know I can't be the only one,

Ah. Yeah. I had tried those chords before I posted, but they didn't sound like what he was playing. But I guess the fact that he was tuned down explains it.

But I don't like having to re-tune my uke (or guitar...which prevented me from playing a LOT of guitar songs). But now that I play through more of the song, I guess D A G A does sound pretty good. Thanks!

Well, if you want to play it in the correct key, it would be: Eb, Bb, Ab, Bb.

yeah Imma have to go with seeso on this one. His sound alot more accurate but I'm still not so sure about that last chord though. Ithink it sounds better if you use Eb, Bb, Ab, and the A# Chamorro uses. Sounds good that way.

well playing d, a, g, a is the the lower version of it
if you noticed playin Eb, Bb, etc is just one fret higher
so fit yourself. i honestly play in d, a, g, a because i have lower voice and it sure fit my voice

and also a# and Bb is the same thing

Misguided Musician
03-26-2008, 03:21 PM
I know A# and Bb are the same but there are 2 forms of it. High Bb and Low Bb.



Bb(low) Bb
A:---1------5----|
E:---1------6----|
C:---2------5----|
G:---3------7----|

well you can can use either one

it would probably say if its a high chord...like lets say a g
it would say g (high) or something

same chord only thing higher note

Misguided Musician
03-26-2008, 04:54 PM
yeah for this song it require's both. So the chords are :Eb, Bb, Ab, Bb(high).

boidflip
03-26-2008, 05:29 PM

Aldrine has great tutorials on this site, Ukuleleunderground.com, as well as iamhawaii.com, although you need an account for the latter (totally worth it.) You can also find tabs on tropicalstormhawaii.com. And for popular american songs, chords can be found on many of the guitar chord sites. I like ultimateguitar.com.

Good luck with learning to play the uke!
