Note: Chords on Ultimate Guitar may be different from the tutorial above due to being in a different key or because the author has simply used different chords from my version. Use the transposing tool available on their site to transpose chords to the key you wish to play in.

BEGINNER TIPS:

If you have trouble with pressing the F Major chord, you can replace it with the F7 chord. Using this chord helps 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 D so capo the 2nd fret and use the chords below if you want to play in the same key as the original song.

Love it, you’re a great help! Can you teach us how to play Long Way Home or Amnesia by 5 Seconds of Summer? It would mean a lot!
