David Bowie – Space Oddity (chords)

Space Oddity by David Bowie.

I send my thanks to people who publish chords on the Internet. The primary sources for my arrangement were http://www.lindesign.se/uwp/guitar/b/david_
and http://www.scorpex.net/uke.htm. For this version, I’ve tried to find the chords and chord variants I think work best on the ukulele. I hope you like it!

    Thanks for the feedback, Joe H. and Beth! 😀

    I’m not very good with strumming patterns, but I play D DUD UD UDDD.

    At “and the papers want to know whose shirts you wear”, the Fm chord lasts for D DUD U, and then it changes to C for the D UDDD part.

    I haven’t compared it closely to the original recording. Whenever I try, I get confused …

    … and whenever I try to sing, I mess up completely 😉
