the song can be played in the following 3 ways
The song can be played in the following 3 ways
  • Very simply – we will do that first. Just D, G and A that is it. So you will just play all open strings for D, 5th fret barre for G and 7th fret barre for A.
  • Next add in the 6th chords. It would then be 2 beats of each chord followed by 2 beats of the 6th of that chord.
  • Next start adding in the more advanced voicings. In this manner it is almost an factor of 10 variations. Start with the E major 7 and just keep adding.
