Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra – I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man (Chords)
Another one from the wonderful WIUO. This Prince cover is the standout track on their latest EP The Dreaming. Another good one for ukulele groups – easy chords for the beginners and twiddly bits for the showoffs. The only unusual chord in it is Ab. If you can’t get your fingers around that you can just move the whole G chord shape up a fret and reach your thumb round to stop the G string sounding.
d – d – d u d u
Will see you almost all the way through.
In the verse: once for C, once for G and twice for F.
In the chorus: once for F, once for G and twice for F. Once for the other chords (except the final G – two down strums for that).
There’s a lot going on in the intro. I’ve written it up for four parts:
Your Man (Intro Tab)
And here’s me playing that arrangement slowed down a bit.
