I’m hardly a Justin Bieber fan but I do like the little picked guitar intro on this song and it works really well on the ukulele so here’s the tab…
It’s a pretty straightforward one to play, it’s mainly just a case of getting the timing right. The muted notes in the tab above are really very slight – they’re not really played. The short, staccato feel is perfect for the ukulele. You’ll be playing this one in no time. It sounds something like this…
Personally I start with my 2nd and 3rd fingers picking up the notes at fret 4. This allows you to then transition into using your first and second fingers for pretty much everything else. Nothing else should cause you any problems here.
To pluck or strum the notes you can go either way really. I experimented a little to start with but it sounds best (at least to me) to pick the notes with my thumb and index finger throughout.
I feel slightly better about myself knowing that Ed Sheeran was on the writing credits for this one. Who knew?
