“I use a capo on the 2nd fret,” says Norman, “but to be in the same key as the original you do not use a capo.” Beth starts off this easy acoustic guitar lesson by briefly performing the song so you can hear what it sounds like. Next Beth goes over the chords that are used as follows: G, D/F# (D over F sharp), D, Em (E minor), C, Am7 (A minor seven), C/B (C over B), Dm (D minor) and A/C# (A over C sharp). Next Beth goes over the three chord progressions for the song as follows; progression one for the verse; G, D/F#, Em, D and C and that the strumming pattern for this is down, down, up for each chord. Chord progression two for the pre chorus is; Am7, C/B, C, C/B, Am7, C/B, C, D and G and the strumming pattern is: down, down, up, up, down, up. Finally the chord progression for the chorus is: G, G/B, C, D (played twice), G, G/B, C, A/C#, Dm, G and D/F# and the strumming pattern is the same as the verse.
