This is a super easy beginner song using all basic guitar chords that you probably already know how to play. The only part of this song that may be challenging if you are an absolute beginner is the strumming pattern. It is a fast paced rhythm that you may find a bit tricky. If you are unable to play along at the correct speed, then slow it down. Play it at a speed where you aren’t making any errors. Once you perfect that speed, then go a little faster.
To play this particular version of the song that Marty teaches, you will need to use a capo on the 2nd fret. If you aren’t sure what a capo is or how to use one, follow this link for more information on how to use a guitar capo for acoustic guitar.
The chord shapes you will need to know are : A Minor, C Major, E Minor and D Major.
