At the BUG Jam we're going to use the Camila Cabello version - with RAP! Beginners - fun opportunity to learn [Gm] and [Eb]. Get your fingers into the Gm shape, then for the Eb keep everything in place and just slide your 2nd finger from the 2nd fret to the 3rd fret on the 3rd string. The first three song sheets are in the same key as the videos and then I've added one in Am for beginners to have fun with! I've arranged the chords based on 2 beats to the bar to make it easy to know how the chords fit in with the words (although most piano arrangements I looked at have it as 4 beats to a bar).
- Camila Cabelo version with rap - abridged for BUG. Don't get hung up on the arrows - you may be stopping on a down strum OR an up strum, depending on what strum you've decided to use; similar to video 1 and 2
- Camila Cabelo version without rap - abridged for BUG; similar to video 3 (Fallon show)
- Ariel McCleary cover version (video 4 and 5) - she says she's using a [D] chord, but I think for the most part she's using [D7] however I've done it up based on what she's said, plus I've added the [Eb] that she mentioned in the PRE-CHORUS however you can do the [Cm] instead. You could also just bar the 3rd fret and play [Cm7] instead of [Cm] throughout the song, and use [D7] throughout as well, if you find it easier.
- Am version - for beginners. To play along in the same key as the videos, tune down your uke from GCEA to F Bb D G.
