“This version of the song the chords used can be played along with the CD without using a Capo”, says Norman, “I use a Capo on the 3rd fret because it makes it easier for me to sing”. Beth starts off this easy beginner acoustic guitar lesson by going over the chords used for the song which are; C, D, Dsus4 (D suspended 4), G, Em and Bm. Next she goes over the three chord progressions used in the song. First is the Chorus; C, G, D, Em, C, G, D and Dsus4, which she says you play each chord for four beats played as four down strokes and then one up stroke counted as 1 2 3 4 &. Beth continues by going over a more advanced strumming pattern that can be used as well. Next Beth goes over the chord progression for the verse which is; Em, C, D, Bm, Em, C, D and Dsus4, the strumming pattern is the same as it was on the Chorus. And finally Beth explains how to play the bridge as using the chords; Em, C and D. Complete chord charts and guitar TAB’s for this easy beginner guitar lesson can be found at SongTabs.com.
