For this song you are going to need to know three chords: A Major, D Major and E Major (Click the links for lesson on how to play each chord). These chord are fairly easy to learn and play if you are just starting out. The only chord that might give you some trouble is the A Major chord as you have to squeeze three fingers on the same fret. If you have big fingers like me, it may take some practice to get a clean sound.

I really like the way John breaks this video down by demonstrating three different strumming patterns for this song, from beginner to advanced.
