PWR BTTM – I Wanna Boi (Chords)

PWR BTTM – I Wanna Boi (Chords)

It’s so good to have a rock band around that are fun and look like they’re having a good time.

The chords for this one are dead simple. The only slightly tricky bit is the chromatic move down from C to A (which is going to remind of that bit in that Fratellis song forever more). If you want to simplify that bit you can play a standard C chord then just play single notes on the second then first frets of the A-string (in place of the B and Bb chords respectively) then play an A chord.

Suggested Strumming

You can start off with just one down-strum per chord in the first verse. Then use this as the main strum:

d – d – d u d u

You can use that for everything but the C-B-Bb-A move where you can do one down-strum per chord.

    Recently found PRW BTTM though NPR’s Tiny Desk series. I’ve been obsessing over this song for over a week now and I can’t tell you how happy I am to see that my favourite uke blog has posted definitive chords. Thank you so very much.

    Ha, I was unaware of PRW BTTM until now.

    Looks like they could successfully win over the fat 47 year-old demographic

    I’m sure they’ll be thrilled

    AlNapp: Glad I could turn you onto them. They’re a big hit with fat 38 year olds round my place.
