This song is not really a beginner song, but it isn’t super difficult either. I guess you could classify it as an intermediate song as you will need to play a few barre chords and some of the chord changes are a bit tricky. It really is a great song to practice with though.
You will need a capo on the first fret to play this particular version of the song. If you do not know what a capo is or how to use one, check out this lesson on how to use a guitar capo. In that post, you will also find a link to where you can purchase a good , inexpensive capo online.
The chord shapes for this song are: B Minor (Marty teaches a B Minor Barre Chord in the lesson below. There is an easy cheat version of the B Minor chord on this page), D Major, A Major, E Minor, G Major , G Minor and Asus4.
