Before you start playing this one, you’ll have to fiddle with your knobs. His uke is in open-F tuning: FCFA. So you need to tune your G string down two frets and your E string up a fret. It’s a tuning that’s a lot of fun to play around with. More restricting than standard tuning, but you will come up with ideas for it.
But the altered tuning does make it a little more difficult to figure out what’s going on. The song is a basic I – IV – V in F. The F chord is 0000 and 0578. The Bb chord is 0201. For the V chord he’s using C6 which is 2020.
If you’re planning on using this tuning, here are a few more chord shapes you could use:
Dm – 0200
F7 – 0343
F/D/B/Ab diminished – 0232
F aug – 0100
Fsus4 – 0001
G7 – 2202
Neal’s very eager to hear any covers of this song. So if you record one, let him know.
