STEP 2: REFER TO TUTORIAL NOTES
If you have trouble with chord changes, replace the D, Am and C chords with Dsus4, A7sus4 and Cadd9 respectively. Also, you can try replacing Bm with D throughout the song if Bm is proving to be a challenge to use. It’s not ideal, but it will help you get through the song.
Using these chords make chord changes much easier for beginners and in some cases even makes the song sound better than if you just used the normal chords.
The original key of the song is A so capo the 2nd fret and use the chords below if you want to play in the same key as the original song.
CHORDS USED (5): G C D Am Bm
Easier Chord Options (4): G Cadd9 Dsus4 A7sus4
