Bess Rogers – I Don’t Worry (Chords)

UPDATE: You can now buy the chords for this song (and other Bess Rogers songs) on Abatabs.

Bess Rogers is obviously a bit hit with the sensitive girl types who are fans of her cohorts Ingrid Michaelson and April Smith. I’ve had a bunch of requests to write up one of her songs.

Right now you can pick up this song in exchange for your email on Bandcamp.

Suggested Strumming

This strumming pattern will get you through most of the song:

d – d – – u d u

But you’ll want to do just down strums in the bridge section.

Download it on Bandcamp and pick up her Travel Back EP

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for posting this. I have been through absolute hell and back trying to figure out the chords of this song. (It’s prolly easier than I’m making it up to be but I’m just a beginner to the ukulele) Thanks again! :)

    Many thanks for the link. Really appreciate your thoughtfulness, and Bess receives a healthy portion of the proceeds from the sale of her tabs, too… We heart Uke Hunt.

    Are these chords on lock down now?!
    I can’t find them for free anywhere… :(

    Captured by Jess: Yep, if you want them you’ll have to pay for them.

    Why do you have to pay for the chords? That’s kinda gross. I really liked this song….but I don’t think I like the artist as much now. :/ Not to be mean or anything….that’s just how I feel.

    squidlydia: Independent musicians have to make a living. It’s her music and she’s got a right to do with it as she wishes.

    It looks like Abatabs is no longer in business. Could you repost the chords? Thanks for all the awesome work you do. I love your site!
