Steven Universe – Here Comes a Thought (Chords and Tab)

Rebecca Sugar – Here Comes a Thought (Chords)

After doing It’s Over, Isn’t It? before the break, I wasn’t planning on doing another Steven Universe song so soon. But I got some requests (as I always do for SU songs) and there are some really nice chord moves and picking in it.

I worked this out from the ukulele version Rebecca Sugar did at Comic Con. The version on the show uses the same chords but is arranged differently.

Suggested Strumming

In the chorus: you can just do one down strum per chord (or two down strums on Fmaj7 if you’re feeling adventurous).

In the verse: I’ve written up the whole C9 – C – Cmaj7 – C6 line but you don’t have to play the whole thing. You can just play C9, let the g, C and E strings ring while you play 5 – 3 – 2 – 0 on the A-string. Or you can just play the Steven strum on C9 then C6.

For everything else you can use the old Steven strum:

d – x u – u d –

In the verse do that twice on Fmaj7 and once each on E and E7.

In the pre-chorus: The Steven strum twice for everything except the first two G7sus4 – G7 moves (once each there).

In the bridge: Steven strum twice for all Cmaj7 – Fmaj7. And just a down strum per chord elsewhere.

Twiddly Bits

Here Comes a Thought (Tab)

Like It’s Over, this one uses one finger per string picking. Don’t worry too much about recreating the exact pattern. You can try any pattern you like the sound of so long as you’ve got the chords right and the rhythm is similar. The sound quality of the video isn’t great so the picking in the tab probably isn’t completely accurate anyway.
