Shawn Mendes strumming pattern and tabs for ukulele piano

When You’re Gone

Capo 3rd Fret

G 320033
D xx0232
A x02220
Bm x24432

Man… that chorus really creeps up on you huh? This is the kind of song that I am waiting to hear from Shawn. I always suspected that his voice will go great with a full band!

Anyways, I decided to use a capo on the 3rd fret for this song. The G to D chord transition sounds nicer on the acoustic guitar. And the chords are easy to strum tbh! One thing that I am playing around with is to play the A chord like this x022xx, it kinda sounds like a power chord and gives the rawness to the song because it sounds a bit “thicker”. I don’t know, what do you think? As always, I recommend playing what “feels right” to you 🙂
