Hellogoodbye – Betrayed by Bones

Hellogoodbye – Betrayed by Bones (Chords)

To complete the Ukulele Recordings EP trilogy. On the first few listens I thought this was the weakest track on it. But it’s grown on me a great deal since.

Like the other tracks on the EP, it’s in D tuning. But it works fine playing the chords in C-tuning. Although I would advise playing the similar chord inversions to those you would play in D tuning. So D would be 2225, F#m would be 6654.

Suggested Strumming

D U X (U)

The U in brackets is an up strum with the strings muted with your fretting hand.

Buy on iTunes.

Requested by about 20 people on Ukulele Underground.

    It has nothing to do with this song, but some time ago I found some plain uke music sheets on this website and now I couldn’t find them anywhere. Does anyone know where to find them?

    This pdf from an ukulele shop in Amsterdam is excellent -especially for developing chord melody arrangements
