Hey everyone! It’s “Fan Request Friday!” This month, we’re going to show you how to play “Million Reasons” by Lady Gaga. This one’s a bit different.. it’s really easy, but it can seem really complicated at the same time. The chords are the usual suspects: simple, campfire chords that we’re all used to, but the strumming is a bit different than most pop tunes. This song has 2 distinct strumming patterns (one for the verse, and another for the chorus + bridge). They’re both quite long, too, so we take a good look at those to make sure you’re getting ’em right!
The chords used are Am, C, F, and G. We show you the way she plays F, and if you need any extra help with that chord, please check out our eBook page where we show you a couple easier ways to play it.
The strumming pattern for the verse also requires you to adjust your C and F chords a bit (removing a finger at the right time can be tricky!) so we work through all of that. And then we show you a strumming pattern for the chorus and bridge which is a bit simpler except for the fact that we’re “splitting” it over 2 chords. All of this is explained in detail, so no worries!
