As fast as possible? lol what's the rush eh?

You can go to my YouTube and check out the chords and lyrics. There's also a link to the original "Gitara" by Parokya ni Edgar

sometimes you just have to watch and practice. most of use did that before there was UU. i personally sat in front of YT and watched aldrine play some songs and try and figure it out, along with some other ukulele artists on YT.

watch his video a couple of times and watch how and when he changes chords, then try doing it yourself. listen to a pattern that he has too.

As with most songs, once you become familiar with the melody and the tempo, you'll know when the chord changes are coming. But it takes practice and more practice.

Try using a simple strum vs how it's shown. You can always add the chunk or other variations later. Baby steps! As you said, you've only been playing for a little bit.

the chord change is totally wonky to me as well.

been trying this song every once in a while for 3 months and i'm just now finding a sort of rhythm for it lol.

PRACTICE!!! PRACTICE!!! PRACTICE!!!

oh and fit a song in there once in a while that you can actually play. i do it, and it keeps me from getting frustrated lol.
