Jason Mraz – I’m Yours (Tab and Chords)


Jason Mraz – I’m Yours (Chords)

Here it is. Due to popular demand (i.e. to stop people requesting it). And also due to the fact that the other versions on line keep it in the original key of B. It makes more sense, for beginners in particular, to move all the chords up a fret so it’s in the more uke-friendly key of C. So if you want to play along with the original, tune down half a step.

I’ve based the chords and tabs on the version in the video (which seems to have survived the cull). It’s very similar to the album version but there are some differences in the intro (and the lyrics but it’s not like they were the world’s ‘bestest’ to begin with).

Suggested Strumming

The strumming in this version (and Aldrine’s version) goes like this:

(d) (u) d – (d) (u) d –

With the strums in brackets being muted strums.

But that’s a little sparse if you are playing the uke by itself. So you could go with.

d u d u d u d u

Emphasizing the second and fourth beats.

Twiddly Bits

Here’s the intro as it’s played

i'm yours ukulele tab

But if you’re doing a solo version it’s easy to fill in the chords in between these parts.

I’m Yours

    Lolz! I’ve totally heard this song by the cute, little, Japanese boy on Youtube (uke3453). I TOTALLY thought HE wrote it (btw, when I thought he wrote it I loved it :). I just now found out it was a real song, I wonder why I’ve never heard it before? When I googled it, my first thought was, “OMG this Jason guy totally ripped off that little boy!” haha. Now that I’ve heard the real song and I actually like it, but I like uke345’s version better. Thanks for the chords.

    Thank you so much for posting this! I’m new to ukulele so I’m eternally grateful you put a beginner-type song up.

    Having said that, the words of the song don’t mean much because it is a fun, carefree, flighty song made to just be an easy tune to hum and remember. Mraz is one of the better “mainstream” artists out there (if you guys took the time to listen to his other stuff). Really, don’t be music snobs. As musicians we’re supposed to encourage all productions of music, even if we don’t think the lyrics are creme de la creme or whatever. Mraz makes people happy through this song and thus people start getting into ukulele. It’s not a bad thing! Don’t you *want* others to get into music? If you can’t handle that or can’t understand it, please don’t call yourselves musicians.

    Marie, Well said. Don’t like it don’t listen. I am truly thankful for this site. I have a Fijian background and my father and I are now able to play some “modern” music as well as the golden oldies at our get togethers because of it – THANK YOU!

    thanks for the chords! if anyone is looking for something fun to do, check out Straight No Chaser’s I’m Yours/Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I’m pretty sure that these chords work with that with the standard tuning!

    Woodshed, if you want a challenge could you tab out the whole song?
    So it would be like this video:

    Hey, i am new to the uke and i love this song. I’m wondering instead of using the stumming pattern

    1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and
    d u D u d u D u

    per chord, could you play it twice and twice the speed, then change chord?

    Anyones help on this?
    Cheers,
    Jamie

  14. Woodshed November 8th, 2011 11:29 pm

    Jamie: You could definitely try that. It should fit.

    i find tha strumming pattern down up then palm mute alot better! throungout the whole song except the middle btw. i think it makes the song sound much better to me x this was the first song i ever learnt on the ukulele and thats the way i played it and i also won a talent show playing it that way! ;) xxx

  21. calavan July 17th, 2012 5:48 am

    I have a difficult chords, with B, F#, G#m.
    But I think your chord is very easy and suitable for me to play.
    Thank you so much.

    I love this tab! I’ve been playing this song for a while with similar chords, but it didn’t sound nearly as good. Thanks for the help!

  23. Woodshed July 28th, 2012 6:51 am
