oh, sorry, I forgot to change the tuning. You are right, to make it easier you only have to tune the uke 1/2 step up, and it will be sound just like the song.

how to tune your uke 1/2 step up.
G#-C#-F-A#
You can play the song without tuning Like this, and maybe it will be easy to sing, but if you try to play along the original song it wont sound right.

As this is an improvement on an existing version, the other should be removed once this one is approved. It should also be noted that this is meant to be tuned up a half step... if someone hasn't referred to the other page they might miss that. Otherwise, a good tab. 10/10.

Did you tune your Uke? cause it's 1/2 step down, cause the chords are easier, so if you tuned tour ukelele 1/2 step up it sounds just like the song.
