Leftover Cuties – Places to Go (Chords)

Leftover Cuties – Places to Go (Chords)

I thought I’d posted this one months ago but there it was in my drafts. And it deserves posting because the Leftover Cuties album puts a grin on my face every time I hear it. It’s an effective poppy updating of the 30s uke sound. And it’s a good time for it to crop up because the Cuties have a new collection of covers coming out soon. You can preorder it here and get two tracks straight away.

Suggested Strumming

In the verses you can keep it dead simple with:

d – d – d – d u

And in the choruses you can use:

d – d u – u d –

Easy Version

Leftover Cuties – Places to Go (Easy Version)

If you’re not into barre chords, you can play this version with a capo on the first fret.

Twiddly Bits

The song has a great blues outro that goes like this in the original key:

And you can play the stylophone intro like this:

Move both of those down a fret if you want to play it in the easy key.

    Just saw the Leftover Cuties in San Diego. Great music, great group and great people. Great use of the Ukulele in their music. Thanks for the chords.

    My second favorite Cuties song next to Sunnyside. Can’t seem to find tabs for that one though. Hint hint.
