Well, I'm trying to learn the song "Grow old with you" by adam sandler [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4feh9e-jM3Q].
But when I do the Bm (http://www.alligatorboogaloo.com/uke/chords/chord_4222.gif) it just sounds really bad.. What would be the problem >.<..

Perhaps your fingers just aren't strong enough yet.

I've been having a horrible time playing Bb7. My teacher told me to use my first finger to cover all the strings and then put my middle finger on top of it, then use my ring finger for the second fret. (Make sense?). It just gives the first finger some more pressure and the sound is better. After doing that for a couple of months it is starting to sound nicer.

Just keep practicing and things improve.

Nice video dapoet! I love that song too. you have a really cool, unique voice.

As far as the Bm goes it didn't really sound bad. Just make sure you are putting enough pressure on the frets and let each note ring out clearly.

Looking at the video, looks like the chords he's using are A, Bm, C#m, and E7.

Grow Old With You

I wanna make you smile
Whenever you're sad
Carry you around
When your arthritis is bad
All I wanna do is
Grow old with you.
I'll get you medicine
When your tummy aches
Build you a fire
When the furnace breaks
It could be so nice
Growing old with you.
I'll miss you
I'll kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold
Need you
Feed you
Even let you hold the remote control
Let me do the dishes
In our kitchen sink
Put you to bed
When you've had too much to drink
I could be the man who
Grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you
