McFly – Love Is Easy (Chords)

McFly – Love is Easy (Chords)

It’s been quite a while since I did any proper pop songs and risked hospitalisation. So this week I’m doing two.

I never thought I’d write up a McFly song but:

a) They’ve released a ukulele.
b) It contains a diminished chord and is therefore beyond reproach.
c) It’s insanely catchy.

The trickiest part of the song is the quick changes between the E and F#m. I’ve shown the standard fretting in the chord chart but test out some of the variations to see which feels best to you. I went with number 4 and blocked the g-string with my thumb.

Suggested Strumming

You can use this as the main strumming pattern:

d – d u d – d u

Which sounds like this:

Strum (MP3)

And vary it up with this:

d – d u d u d u

Use one of those patters –

Doo sections: Twice for the A’s and F#m and once for the D and E.
Verse and bridge: Twice for each chord.
Chorus: Once per chord except the quick F#m – E change. Do two downstrums each for those (or just one if you want to make it a bit easier).

Twiddly Bits

Tom might have taken up the uke but Danny remains my favourite McFly. Even if he’s not a ukulelist he was still kind enough to make the solo ukeable. Here’s a quick tab of the solo/outro lick for uke:

Here’s how (half) the solo sounds this on uke:
