Price Tag - Jessie J ukulele chords


This isn't normally a song that is my cup of tea, and certainly not something I had played on ukulele before. But then a couple of things crossed by inbox.



Firstly, a month or two ago, the people of UkeJam, the ever growing uke club in Godalming, UK, got an acoustic spot at the Guilfest festival in Guildford. Penny, one of the organisers of UkeJam shared with me a video clip which you can view Here courtesy of Ian Wright who filmed it. Now if that isn't a sight of ukulele players having the most fun together I don't know what is!

I pondered on this for a while and decided to put the chords up. I got in touch with Penny for a reminder of a link to the video and on the very same day my pal Rae Carter uploaded a vid of him singing the same tune (video link at the end of this post!)

Anyway, they are two examples in very different styles, and that's one of the things i like about the uke - it's easy to move around the styles to make what YOU prefer, fit.

Anyway, on with the chords. It's a simple rolling riff throughout an I've provided it below in the standard chord version you can play along to the track with. If you want to try it in UkeJam style (and why not) they have the chords transposed to a more amenable key for a wide variety of voices. If you want to play along in their style, substitute the chords below, in order with C, Em, Am, F.

Ps, I've included the rap section, but you can avoid it.... I would!
