Lightspeed Champion – Tell Me What It’s Worth (Chords)
There are plenty of pictures of Lightspeed Champion with a ukulele but it’s not often you see him playing the ukulele. I was hoping there’d be a little uke on his new album, but no such luck. So, I’ve written up his latest single Tell Me What It’s Worth.
The only potential stumbling block with the chords is the Fmaj7. You can make it easier to get to in the chorus by fretting the C chord with your index finger rather than the ring finger. But that’s not going to help you in the middle section where it goes from G to Fmaj7. If you find it too big of a jump, play the standard F chord there (you can use the standard F chord in the chorus too, it’ll sound right).
The song’s guitar solo sounds really good on the uke if you use the re-entrant string and let the notes ring into each other like this:
This creates a cascading effect. Much more interesting than the boring guitar way of doing it:
