Alright UUers! You guys asked for it, so we delivered!

Uke Lesson 19 - Out of My League (http://ukuleleunderground.com/2009/07/01/uke-lesson-19-out-of-my-league-and-live-lesson-wed/)

This one is actually a little advanced, so be sure to take your time, learn each part, rewatch as necessary, and practice, practice, practice! And if you have questions (or comments, or tabs that you put together to share with everyone, or wonderful recipes involving chicken) post them below!

Thanks everybody, Happy July!

Oooh, one more thing. This lesson is based on Aldrine's interpretation / simplified version of this song. The actual song involves a few more chords and changes throughout. The real chords bounce somewhere between this http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/stephen_speaks/out_of_my_league_crd.htm and this http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/stephen_speaks/out_of_my_league_ver2_crd.htm and then some. If anyone would like to post their take on the original chords, please do. We will bow down to you and feed you grapes.

I made a chord tab for the song using Aldrine's chords. I'll leave the picking tab up to those better than me. The file seems to big to put as an attachment here so I put it on Ultimate Guitar, but it still has to be reviewed.

I also have a version on facebook in my notes at smithpaul60 (http://www.facebook.com/smithpaul60)
Just invite me as a friend and put "ukulele" in the note section and you se see it then.

Or, just pm me with your E-mail and I can send it. Mind you I'll be at work from 2-10 EST

My first real contribution to the site =)

This one has almost a waltz-like feel to it, so instead of counting "1,2,3,4" in your head, count "1,2,3, 1,2,3". So for the strumming -

Count: 1 2 3
Strum: D DUDU

or even

Count: 1&2&3&
Strum: D DUDU

Hope that helps. Thanks smithpaul60 for chording it out! You the, you the best.

Picking progression

Part 1,2,1,3,1,2,4

Verse 1

F G C
It's her hair and her eyes today

F G Am
That just simply take me away

F G C Am
And the feeling that I'm falling further in love

F G Am
Makes me shiver but in a good way

F G C
All the times I have sat and stared

F G Am
As she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair

F G C
And she purses her lips, bats her eyes

Am F G
And she plays with me sitting there slacked jaw

C Am
With nothing to say


CHORUS 1:

C F C
Coz I love her with all that I am

C F C
And my voice shakes along with my hands

F G C Am
Yes she's all that I see and she's all that I need

F G
And I'm out of my league once again

Picking progression

Part 1,2,1,3,1,2,4
Verse 2:

F G C
It's a masterful melody

F G Am
When she calls out my name to me

F G
As the world spins around her

C Am
She laughs, rolls her eyes

F G C Am
And I feel like I'm falling, but it's no surprise


CHORUS 2:

C F C
Coz I love her with all that I am

C F C
And my voice shakes along with my hands

F G C Am
Coz it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea

F G Am
But I'd rather be here than on land

F G C Am
Yes she's all that I see and she's all that I need

F G
And I'm out of my league once again


Picking progression

Part 1,2,1,3,1,2,4


[REPEAT Verse 1 ]
[REPEAT Chorus 2 ]



REmember this is not completely my work Ritzer did the tabbing for the intro and I used some of clevacheva's work as well.

NOTE: When I put ti on here the Chord placement messed up. They are still on the right line but not in the right place. I have a word docx that has all the chords in the correct place if you want it just pm me. Ritzer i compleatly understand you frustration about the lines.

thanks to those who did the hard work. It made putting it together easier.

Just watched the play along for this. What a beautiful version of a beautiful song. WOW is all I can think of to say. I believe it is suited for ukulele much more than the piano!
