    i think it's, Eb9, Gmaj7, Cmaj7, Cadd9, Cmaj, Cmaj7, then an open strum. Sorry if it's incorrect, that's how i play it

    The chords me and Aldrine play are,

    Gmaj7 - Am

    Then the bridge/breakdown C-D-Bm-Am
    Rayan, What you are doing?

    I think Gmaj7 and Cmaj7 is more accurate. Same fret as Am, but your finger is on the A string.

    I play the bridge the same as described--C D Bm Am

    I think the original was in Ab, but G seems to be a bit easier to finger on the uke.

    Based on the original, the chords in G would be what k0ko suggested.

    (GM7 CM7 .....etc.)

    I think you're right, that way is more truer to the Bob Marley way.
