Elliott Smith – Waltz #2 (XO) (Chords)

Elliott Smith – Waltz #2 (XO) (Chords)

Two things prompted me to do this one: tbone rightly chided me for not having done any Elliott Smith yet and my favourite ever episode of Roderick on the Line.

Suggested Strumming

This strum will see you all the way through the song:

d – – u d u

Main Strum (MP3)

With the intro you need to miss out the down strum on the first bar. So it starts with u d u. You can follow that with the main strum. But I like to do alternate bars of d u – u d u. So that makes the strumming for the very start of the song:

u d u
d – – u d u
d u – u d u
d – – u d u
d u – u d u

Which sounds like this:

Intro Strum (MP3)

Twiddly Bits

That’s followed by this little riff which crops up throughout the song:


Here’s how that sounds against the chords (played on another uke):
