The Do – Stay Just A Little Bit More (Chords)

The Do – Stay Just A Little Bit More (Chords)

It’s really saying something when even I’m bored of the sound of ukuleles in adverts. I’ve been back and forth over whether this one actually is a uke. I think it sounds like a violin being played ukulele style.

The song is in the key of B. So I’ve moved everything up a fret to make it more uke-friendly. If you want to play in the original key tune down a semi-tone.

It’s all easy going up to the middle section when you have to start messing with a G# chord. I’ve put the usual chord shapes in the chart, but you might be better off keeping your ring finger on the G string (4th fret for the G chord and 5th fret for the Cm chord) as it makes the G# transition a little easier.

    A little research reveals (in order of entry) :ukulele, xylophone,
    guitar, string bass, plus strings, whistling, shakers, organ, percussion. Felt silly having to be told the band’s name refers to
    scale tone do (re mi). Franco-Finnish duo. Very nice tune….

    Wow… Your taste in music just blows my mind!
    The Do are amazing! I keep getting confused, because they’re logo/sign says the dø, and ‘ø’ is actually a letter in my language (Danish)…

    But very much thanks for this!

    Finding this CD in a bookstore, I can’t stop but keep listening to the song. In Taiwan, few of my friends like to listen to this kind of music.:(
    So i am so happy to be here.
    Sorry for my poor English. :)
