Notes:

  • Level Of Ease: All chords are easy to play and the song is suitable for beginners. The timing is a little tricky with this version but listen carefully and follow the chord chart closely... you'll soon get the hang of it.
  • Beginners can play the open version of the chord Bm... xx4432 - don't forget to avoid the bottom 2 strings.
  • The repeat sign / means you repeat the previous chord in the bar. Keeping in mind we are in 3/4 time (3 quarter-note beats per bar:
     1.  Am  D     2.  D   G 
     ||         /  ||         / || 
    Bar 1: Play Am for 1 beat and D for 2 beats.
    Bar 2: Play D for 1 beat and G for 2 beats:.
  • You can replace the G6 with a G chord but make sure to give the G6 a go because it makes for a very interesting sound. It is a very easy chord to play - just think of it as a G chord without the 3rd finger.
