And She Was - Talking Heads - Ukulele Chords

I'm a big Talking Heads fan, but boy oh boy are David Byrnes chord changes not the most comfortable on the ukulele. You won't forgive me for that fast E to A change. Still, makes for good practice.

And She Was - Talking Heads

(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.....)

Ah, sorry - blame Youtube. You should find an alternative via google.

If you use barred E and A chords, that transition isn't so bad.

That's how I play it. For beginners though barres are the problem! If nothin else, songs like this will help prompt new players to stop avoiding those tough chords!
