I love the things that can happen on the internet. Step One: Upload some songs to YouTube as KokoKaina. Step Two: Get the drummer off of The Raconteurs to watch them. Step Three: Get signed, fly to LA and change your name to Zee Avi. And she hasn’t let it go to her head. She did the sensible thing and spent the money on a decent ukulele and tuned it for the album version.
She has a lovely, jazzy voice and kudos to her for rhyming heart with Kierkegaard. I guess she couldn’t think of one for Gyllembourg-Ehrensvärd.
For each chord in the verse, try this:
D – D U – U D -
You can use the same strum for the chorus but for the Em – Ebm transition do D – D U – on the Em and U D – on the Ebm.
And in the ba-da… bits, just two down strums each for C and D7 and one for G7.
