The lesson begins with the chord shapes: D G A. This is an easy three chord song on guitar and the switches are all very easy, because we can use a chord switching trick to make them accurate and smooth.

Once we become acquainted with the shapes, we practice the entire chord progression and then we take a look at the strumming pattern. This song uses a strumming pattern that covers all the chord shapes within one pattern.

It’s a really useful technique and sometimes even a beginner can get this but if you need help with rhythm, this is one of those things that will get you past that point. Once we are familiar with the chords and the strumming we can put those together and play through the verse.

The only part left is the chorus and it’s quite similar to the verse we already learned. We just need to make a few adjustments and we can play it with ease.

This song only has two sections: a verse and a chorus. We discuss how to assemble the entire song, including where the guitar solo happens and that’s it!
