John Mayer – Waiting On The World To Change

The guitar prince himself continues to amaze me with his astounding back catalogue. He is an absolute baller on the 6 string so transferring his music onto the 4 string is often difficult. This song, however, was effortless. Let’s learn to play Waiting On The World To Change on the ukulele.

What Are We Learning To Play?

Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post. 

Ukulele Tabs

We open up with a simple set of chords. I’m using a low G in the video but the main riff is played on the bottom three strings so it works on a high G fine. This song has a super laid back feel but its still important to listen out for when to play each lick. The parts in blue are just some embellishments I added, if you are struggling to play them, don’t worry about it.
