BEGINNER TIPS:

Replace D, Em and C with Dsus4, Em7 and Cadd9 respectively for an easier way to play the song. They don’t require so much finger movement when performing chord changes and are good for people who don’t feel completely comfortable with chord changes yet. Refer to the chord reference chart for a demo on how to play the mentioned chords.

Also, the original key of the song is B so capo the 4th fret and use the chords below if you want to play in the same key as the original song.

    when you are doing the strumming patter of (down,Down,down,Down) do you only hit the e chord on the first down?
