Today, Jeff will teach you how to play I’m Yours by Jason Mraz. This is a great sing-along style ukulele tab arrangement following the original recording. The song was originally played in the key of B but Jeff transposed it to the Key of C to make the chords easier to play. Enjoy!
Close To You was originally played in the key of C. Jeff made some adjustments as he is following an interesting chord melody arrangements by Kiyosi Kobayashi. Kobayashi plays through the whole song using only the thumb of his right hand. Jeff made his own version by bringing in strumming and small edits to his playing. The song is considered a great beginner to intermediate level tune.
Why Should You Have A Case For A Ukulele? So the obvious answer here is protection. Whilst ukuleles are made out of quality woods, the wood is very thin. Even if it has a thicker finish on it, it’s still highly susceptible to scratches, dings, and holes. It only takes bumping it just the right way into the corner of something to ruin your day. Kind of like stubbing your toe.
