With You - Kaipo Kapua G#m=4342 or 1342 F#m=6654 I think Reggae strum works great with this one.... However, A good strum pattern to play along with video... DOWN DOWN Chunk-UP UP UP-DOWN CHUNK-UP [INTRO] G#m F#m (repeat a few times and then continue till end of song) [VERSE] G#m F#m You're so damn fly, when you walk by, couldn't believe my eyes. G#m F#m Excuse me miss if I'm comin' off shy, that's just the better half of being a guy. G#m F#m It started like this, (Shaowtay) took a glance at your hips, (Shaowtay) G#m F#m Blew your boy a kiss... That's when I knew it was me and you... [CHORUS} G#m F#m G#m F#m (Ooooooooooo... ba dap bop pa dop Ooooooooooooo... ba dap bop pa dop) Baaybeeee, baby... come a little closer to me... a little closer to me... G#m F#m G#m F#m (Oooooooooooo... ba dap bop pa dop Oooooooooooooo... ba dap bop pa dop) Laayydee, lady... we B chillin' in the V.I.P... Shorty, just you and me... G#m F#m How many times have you heard it? Everything would be so perfect. G#m F#m Shorty, let me know what the word is, and I'll be waiting right here, patient... G#m F#m Want to be the one that U lovin'... even when push comes to shovin'. G#m F#m G#m When two hearts start rubbin' together, it's forever with you. [VERSE] (G#m) F#m I see the way you look at me, and I wanna know... (are you mistaking me for someone else?) G#m F#m By the way that U glancing, I be losing control... (this is a feeling that I never felt) G#m F#m I know I'm starin', girl, but I can't look away... I wanna speak but I can't find the words to say. G#m F#m The thought of two hearts as one is definitely fun, bu... [CHORUS}
Try Emaj7 instead of G#m. I think thats the chord that they’re using. The way you hold a G#m on the uke is how you hold an Emaj7 on the guitar but this alternate position might sound a little better.
Ooooo…that sounds good too! thanks for that!
These days, I’ve been working out most of my chords in the back yard while enjoying a cigar… I don’t know if it’s a legit concern, but I’m afraid to use a good uke around the cigar smoke so I use one of my cheap plastic ones… And I have to admit, not always the best sound so I play the chords and then I have to imagine what it would sound like on a proper sounding uke… Usually not too far off tho.
I chorded this song after reading how Kaipo couldn’t make $50,000 bail for his domestic violence arrest. Not to make light of the situation, because it’s some serious kine allegations…just on a totally side note from that, his situation made me think that It must be way harder than I thought to make good money in the industry.
When playing with your suggestion of 4446 (EM7) instead of 4342 (G#m), I think I like 6657 (F#m7) to go with it instead of 6654 (F#m)….
I have to say tho, I’m still okay with the original G#m to F#m.
Switching it up in the middle of the song is nice too. 🙂
