This song is great for beginners even though it does contain a barre chord. There is only one and it isn’t that bad. So don’t click away from this page because I mentioned the dredded Barre Chord. Why not give it a try? You are going to have to eventually learn these more difficult chords if you want to progress as a guitarist.
So, if you are reading this, it means that you are a brave one and have decided to stick around and learn this song. Excellent, let us resume then shall we?
There are two parts to this song, a verse and a chorus. The verse is simply two chords repeating and those chords are Am (You can also substitute an Am7 here, which actually sounds better in my opinion. It’s got more of a jazzy feel to it and sounds more like the original. It really is your call though. Whatever is more comfortable for you. Both chords sound fine.) The other chord needed for the verse is an F#m7. This is the dreaded barre chord I was talking about.
