    Default Officially Missing You - Tamia

    I been trying to figure out this song after I saw the cover on Youtube:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gdw297-ozcg

    but no chords up or anything so I googled it and all I found was the guitar chords on ultimate guitar:

    http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/...ng_you_crd.htm

    And I'm barely up to the first D7sus because it doesn't sound right, anyone wanna take a shot at it? :P

    Yeah that guy playing on the uke is playing different chords. I think the tabs you have are correct if you strum it the way the original song goes, but if you want to play it like that guy its a little different. I'll have a listen to see if I can get it.

    The chords on UG look good. I been playing Gmaj7 instead of G. I think that's what I hear when I listen to tamia, but it might just be selective hearing. This is how I've been playing the chords for the verses:

    Gmaj7 - 0222 (instead of G)
    F#m - 6654
    B7 - 2322
    Em7 - 0435
    Dm7 - 2213
    G6 - 0202 (instead of G7)
    Cmaj7 - 0002
    Bm7 - 2222
    Em - 243X (instead of Em7)
    Am - 2003 (instead of Am7)
    D7sus - 2233

    haven't gotten around to a vid yet, maybe soon. Shooots.

    Sorry it took awhile, guys. Here's my vid for this song ... all parts played on my Fluke. I'm hoping to help change whatever people might think about Flukes, so hopefully this is just the start of a shift.

    Let me know what you think. Thanks!

    yeah, for the verses and chorus, that's the order for the chords.

    how many beats do each chord get? how do you do the picking part in the beginning and what is the strumming pattern?

    I'm still having trouble with this song!

    I've watched puremarkska's video over and over and I can't seem to figure out what simple chord goes after F. It goes;

    -3---0---?---2---2-
    -1---1---?---2---3-
    -2---0---?---2---4-
    -2---2---?---2---2-

    Anybody know that last note he plays? And yes, I capo'd 1st fret and it sounded just like his except for this missing note.
