Colbie Caillat – Tied Down

Colbie Caillat – Tied Down (Chords)

With its laid back island vibes, it no surprise that Colbie Caillat‘s summer hit Bubbly inspired plenty of ukulele covers, despite using the term ‘bubbly face’ as a compliment.

Her album also features a similarly laid back catchy tune played on uke: Tied Down. It’s also very simple to play. Most of the chords will be very familiar to you (F, Am, G, C). You might not recognise C6 but it’s just all the strings open.

The strumming pattern is also pretty simple. Strum up, down, up four times for each chord. After the second up strum, stop the strings ringing by bringing your picking hand down on the strings – or do a chnk.

Interestingly, the chords in the live version are slightly different. Instead of F and C6 in the verse, it’s F6 and C. Well, it’s interesting to a nerd like me.
