There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
These are the chords from Charlie McDonnell’s (or Charlieissocoollike’s) video “Fun
Science: Sound!” video for you so you can play some fun music ^_^. The song is played in
standard tuning (GCEA) I believe, so no alterations there. It’s not too hard to play
once you get the hang of it, even though most of the chords are barre chords as in most of
Coollikes tunes. Buts it’s quite a good song really considering it’s about sound xD

I'm pretty sure these chords are right, corrections are welcome ^-^

Chords involved:
C1: 6544
G:  5232
Eb: 3336
F:  5558
Bb: 3211
C2: 0003
G2: 77710

C1                G          Eb                F
It starts with an idea or an impulse to make a sound,
           C1                G                   Eb               F
And then a message gets sent to my head where my vocal chords are found.

       Bb                     F              C2
And they vibrate, and cause the air to vibrate too.
         Bb                     F                    G2
Then the air gets shot out of my mouth on its way to you!

C1             G              Eb           F
This vibration I've just made travels as a wave,
       C1         G                         Eb                F
But if I vibrated differently then it would cause the wave to change.

          Bb           F                     C2
If I sing low then the frequency of the wave drops.
          Bb            F
If I sing high then the frequency is high too.
And if I sing loud then my micro-phone pops!

    C1                 G               Eb               F
The sound wave travels through the air unless it hits a wall
         C1             G                       Eb                F
Then the higher frequencies get absorbed and the deeper ones pass through

               Bb                F                   C2
And that's why when I'm behind a window I sound like this.
           Bb              F                                       G2
And if the wall is hard the sound bounces back and you can hear an echo!

             C1             G               Eb              F
The sound is captured by my micro-phone and sorted digitally,
           C1                G                  Eb                    F
That was until you play this video and now your speakers are mimicking me

            Bb                  F               C2
And now the waves are back and going into your ear.
            Bb                                       G2
Only 6 more steps inside your head until you get to hear!

C1       G          Bb
Sound is touch at a distance,
F                  C1        G              Bb         F
When they say that music can touch you, it literally does.

C1       G        Bb
Sound is a vi-ber-ation,
    F                C1      G                    Bb
But thanks to modern science we can know that it's shaking our eardrums:

(still Bb)
And the drum then shakes some tiny bones
And the bones send vibrations to a liquid
And the waves in the liquid bend some hairs
And the hairs send a signal to the brain
Bb                                            C1                G2
And it's only when it forms a pattern in your head that you can hear!

(Outro): C1, G, Bb, F, C1

Then he never really did figure out a good way to end that song... ;)

Hope this is helpful in some way, as I’ve said, this song was written by the talented
young man Charlie McDonnell, known on Youtube as Charlieissocoollike. The video to this
song can be found here (it's very entertaining):
