Keston Cobblers’ Club – Pett Level (Chords)

Keston Cobblers’ Club – Pett Level (Chords)

I’m enjoying everything the Cobblers are putting out at the moment. And, judging by the number of requests for this one, it looks like I’m not the only one. They’re being massive teases and releasing their new album three tracks at a time. Pett Level crops up on the second part For.

The song is played with a capo on the 7th fret (which, along with the double tracking, give it a mandoliny sound). If you want to play along with out a capo, you can use these chords:

Suggested Strumming

A simple strumming pattern you can use all the way through is:

d – d u – u d u

Intro and verse: play that twice for the C5 at the beginning of each section and C at the end. And once for everything else.
Instrumental and Outro: play it twice for the C5 then once for everything else.
Middle: Once for everything except the G7s on ‘day’ and ‘away’.

Slowed down, the strum sounds like this:

    I do enjoy the Cobblers, too, but with just one ukulele the capo at the 7th fret doesn’t sound too good. So thanks for the play along sheet. It’s good fun.

    excellent transcription yet again woodshed,
    loving the new keston cobblers tracks atm.
    i didn’t find it too uncomfortable to just barre off at the 7th fret but then again getting my capo would involve getting up…

    Captain: I think it sounds pretty good with one uke.

    cbf: I found it quite tricky without the capo. Still, you’re right, better than getting up.

    I dig this song. It is kind of a tricky barre, but that just makes it more fun. Try barring it for the first verse or two, and then switching to the unbarred version. It fills out beautifully.

    Any chance of getting the chords to “Beam”?
    I can’t find them anywhere.

    Many thanks and keep up the fine work.

    Have to teach a workshop in a week. What will I teach? What will I teach? This song comes on my shuffling ear phones! Ah ha! Using a capo with a uke – not a common habit so a good topic for a uke workshop. I tend to use short pencils and elastic bands for capos.
    Thanks for the transcription. I have already had the kids at my school perform this song (it’s a fav’ of their’s).
