    I found that I was playing alot faster than I was trying to sing to it... but I'm doing better now, I still get confused with the second part though, pretty mama, pretty baby, those ones. I just can't get them to flow correctly.

    I really hope im not doing something bad by bumping this thread, but im curious about a few things:

    How did you guys manage to make the transition from the picking to the strumming?

    And what are the notes for the instrumental, i can actually catch the first part since its so similar to the intro, but other than that, im lost.
    So hidden you need a cheat code

    Hey guys, come see me on youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/UnlockableCharacter

    Hi, I also have a question --is there an easier chord alternative to the C#m and the Dm chords? I'm just starting out and I can't quite get these without smooshing all the strings or not getting the ones I'm supposed to. Thanks.

    Take a look at this page:

    (Make sure you choose the correct tuning at the top right.)

    Maybe there are other ways that are easier for you to play. But don't stop working on the difficult chords, they'll come in handy.

    Default Thanks!

    Aldrine--Thank you and the rest of the UU crew for making this tutorial! This song brings back some great memories for me.

    Poi Dog--Thanks for the tabs and also for the info on the original artist. I knew that some of the lyrics from Drop were taken from the old song Who Loves You by the Four Seasons. But for all of these years, I had no idea that the entire song (Drop) was a remake of an Eddy Grant tune.

    Thanks again!
