Meghan Trainor – Baby Doll (Chords)
I’m not saying I single handedly launched Meghan Trainor’s career, but she did start to get huge after I gave this song the old Uke Hunt bump. It didn’t make the album but it’s easily my favourite song of hers. It has some classic ukulele chord moves like C – A7 – Dm – G7.
First thing to do: put a capo on the fourth fret.
There are a few chord names you might not be familiar with in this one. But don’t be intimidated, they’re very easy to play. The most difficult chord is Fm played in a different way to the usual 1013. But you can use the 1013 version and it’ll sound just fine.
You can use this as the main strum all the way through:
d – d u d u d u
Verses: Do that once for each chord.
Bridge: Main strum twice for each chord.
Intro and Chorus: Here you have to split the strum into two parts (d – d u and d u d u). You do:
– d – d u on the C then d u d u on the Cmaj7.
– One play through the full main strum for each for C7 – Fadd9 – Fm.
– Half each for C – A7 – Dm – G7. A main strum on C.
– Then d – d u on G7, d u on G7sus4 and d u on G7.
Here’s how that sounds (slow then up to speed):
