One Love Uplay2 notes

Click on the renditions with subtitle prompts in the left collumn to play along with Bob Marley.  

If you have a B tuned instrument or transpose your keyboard down one step, play along to One Love in B in which the chord prompts are relative to the key of B. 

If you have a C tuned instrument such as a guitar tuned to CGCGCE, play along to One Love in B for C tuning in which the chord prompts are relative to the key of C.  Remember that # means fret 11 (and * means fret 10).  A capo on fret 4 (which is lowest chord number played) is helpful.   

In general each chord number stands for 2 full beats.

In certain phrases the 57 sequence is also two beats with each chord taking just one beat..  This is indicated by running the lyrics and chord numbers together without a space between the two beats.  

Otherwise there is a space before and after a chord number except when the start of a lyric coincides with the start of a chord in which case there is no space between that chord number and its lyric.

9 is played as a minor chord (or 8 if using the prompts for C tuning).  In tunings with the major third on the top string such as CGCGCE, just don't play it by damping or not striking the highest sounding string, or play the two highest sounding strings three frets further up than the barre.  

Here are the prompts in the lyrics with chord numbers relative to the tonic note (0) of the key the song is performed in.

Many renditions are in the key of B (11) or Bb (10).  To play these on a C-tuned instrument add 11 to each prompt and if the result is 12 or over, subtract 12.  A capo on the lowest used fret is helpful.

To keep prompts as one character, we use * for 10 and # for 11.

eg for the song in B for a C-tuned instrument the chord sequences for each different phrase are:-

6 #
# # 6 6
4 # 6 #
# 8 4 #
# 8 46 #

Note that 8 is played as a minor chord
