Hey everyone! This week, we’re going to show you how to play Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. This song uses the same 4 chords, over and over, in the exact same order, with just 1 strumming pattern. This gives us a great opportunity to work on those basic chords and really cement the fundamentals!
The chords used are C, Am, G, D. We show you some shortcuts that’ll help you switch chords faster, and then work on playing them in the same order that they’re used in the song.
After that, we show you a strumming pattern that really emphasizes the backbeat and makes this medium tempo tune really groove!
I hope you enjoy the lesson, and we’ll see you next week with yet another!
