Noah and the Whale – Jealous Kind of Love (Chords)

Noah and the Whale – Jealous Kind of Love (PDF)

This little uke tune cropped up on the B-side to Shape of My Heart. It doesn’t seem to be available any more, but it’s rather lovely and a simple three chord song so I thought I’d write it up. The video cuts off but you can hear the whole thing on their MySpace.

Twiddly Bits

The uke doubles up the whistling part in the intro and after the choruses.

    fun tune, well done with the chords again woodshed,
    its nice to be able to learn a song in 30 seconds but maybe noah and the whale should ask for a fourth chord from santa for christmas

    Thank you so much for this! I love noah and the whale, and i’m not super good at the ukulele yet, so it’s fun to have songs like theirs that I can easily pick up and play.

    Hey woodshed I was just wondering if you could do a tab for “west coast” or “any fun ” by Coconut records ,they are not a very well known band but they are really fantastic . It would make my summer holiday if you could do this .
    Thanks :D

    Any tips for changing from the C chord to the Bb chord, I am finding it difficult to keep in time while doing so?

  12. Woodshed December 29th, 2012 11:36 am

    Carla: If you use your little finger to play the C chord that’ll let you prepare your other fingers for the Bb chord. Hope that helps.
