I learned it a while ago on the banjo but ukulele being my true love, I thought I’d it figure out and share.
Go watch the video to see strumming pattern. It’s pretty easy once you get the rhythm down( pick 3, down, up, up, down, up, pick 3, down, pick 2, down is a simple way to tag along). You could just strum along, as well. Lots of hammer-on’s but just do them where you feel they need to be. It’s a fun song to play.
Scour the internetz for lyrics. I don’t want to post them here. Beautiful song by the way.
Capo second fret. Basic chords are (relative to capo) C (0003), G (0232), D (2225-bar index on 2, pinky on the 5), Am (5450).
Transition to the chorus is C, G, D…
Chorus goes C, G, Em (in the video he goes high on the neck so I like to do it at 9777 (capo relative) but a regular 0432 will suffice), Am (as shaped above).
