I categorized this song as an easy one because all the chords in it our basic beginner chords that you are probably already familiar with, and they are: G Major, D Major, C Major, A Minor and E Minor. The only difficulty you may run into are the chord changes. This song is rather fast paced and you will have to change chords quickly and often. There is no reason why you have to play this song at its original tempo in the beginning. Play it at a speed that is comfortable and one in which you are able to change chords without error, then speed up as you improve.
