Meghan Trainor – Baby Doll (Chords)

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.

Suggested Strumming

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):

    “I’m not saying I single handedly launched Meghan Trainor’s career, but . . .” Well if you were, and if you did, I’d salute you, sir.

    I have been wishing someone would post the chords to this song! I get back from vacation, and my prayers are answered! As usual, it’s the tips to go with the chords that make this site amazing.
