    Thank you for the videos, they are helpful for a person having difficult reading chords and tablets.

    I must say that this song is one of my favorite songs made by Bob Marley. The lyrics to this song and the lyrics to No woman no cry are some of the best written by this Reggae legend.

    The Treble Clef has the G note as its reference point. This note is on the second line from the bottom of the five line Treble Clef staff. The Bass Clef has the F notes as its reference point. This note is on the second line from the top of the five line Bass Clef staff. Every other note on either staff is easily located from these points.
