Valerie - ukulele chords - Zutons / Amy Winehouse

In memory of the late Amy Winehouse, we played this song last night at our ukulele jam. Works well on the uke, whichever style you play it in. Works nice in laid back Amy Winehouse style or chugging Zutons style!.


LYRICS PROVIDED PURELY FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES  (APOLOGIES FOR BLOCKING OUT THE LYRICS - LAWYERS ARE CLAMPING DOWN ON MUSIC TABS AND CLOSING SITES. I DO NOT WANT GOT A UKULELE CLOSED DOWN, SO SADLY THESE PEOPLE WIN. YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT PEOPLE PLAYING SONGS WOULD BE GOOD FOR RECORD SALES, BUT SADLY, LAWYERS DONT THINK THAT WAY.....)

please tell me the strum pattern

Everyone I know plays it differently, and it depends whether you play the Zutons or Amy version - very different. Either way, you need to find a chugging rhythm that suits your own style
