  1. For a more easier chord, I recommend Am6 instead of gb. :)

  2. a lot of these chords are wrong

  3. Not to be negative but most of these chords are wrong. If you want the right chords the should be on Robin’s (Cavetown’s) Tumblr!

  4. I thought the Gb was kinda out of place, but i’ve found that D7 works well there

  5. imselftitled

    A ton of the chords are wrong.
    The chords Robbie said he uses are:
    Basic Chords: C, G6, Am, Am(+F#), F, Fm
    Bridge: Am, F, C, G6, Am, F, C, G6, G6, Am, Am(+F#), F, Fm

  6. what is the strumming pattern?

  7. barbarabogdan

    The strumming pattern is: d dudu

  8. They_are_a_ghost

    i cried the first time i heard this song ; o ;

  9. Chords:
    Gb/Gbm: Am chord with a finger on the E string, second fret
    G: E7 chord
    Cadd9: E7 chord with a finger on the A string, third fret (where the C chord is)
    any time the chords are listed as:
    C, C, Gb, Cadd7, Am, Gb, F, Fm
    The second C is when you’re meant to slide up to the 7th fret of the A string
    you do this during the chorus as well
    Think of it like this:
    C, high C, E7, E7 + 3rd fret, Am, Am +2nd fret, F, Fm
    All the other chords are correct.
    Just wanted to make a single comment with all the correct info so you don’t have to dig through all the comments for it :)
    be sure to watch cavetown’s video of him singing it; it’s a good way to figure out timing/placement!!
    hope I’ve helped :)

  10. Imaginary Space

    Cavetown himself said these were the chords
    Basic chords: C, G6, Am, Am(+F#), F, Fm
    Bridge: Am, F, C, G6, Am, F, C, G6, G6, Am, Am(+F#), F, Fm
    I’m not trying yto be rude or negative, but i though people should know

  11. unicornlusk

    i love singing to this

  12. someinterestingname

    Please, please, PLEASE do a tab for “This is Home”!!

  13. Panic! At The twenty one Chemical Fall Out doddleoddleSNCKghosts

    They should do It’s Okay!!! I’ve been wanting to learn it for quite a while now…❤️

  14. I only use Am,C,F,km,G, and Cadd9 for this. I suggest dduudu for the strum, and look up the song for more tips!

  15. what’s the easiest key for beginners?

  16. G sounds better as a G6

  17. Gb sounds better as an F#dim

  18. Randomuser

    Please do a tab for “this is home”
