No PDF chord sheet exists for this lesson

As of now, I haven't made a printable PDF to accompany this video lesson. If you'd like to request that I make one, shoot me an email. I can't guarantee I'll make a PDF for every older lesson, but it's helpful to know which lessons have the most interest.

Here's a list of the 200+ lessons I have made PDFs for.

Capo 3rd fret

Head’s up, to play this song in the style I demonstrate in my video - you’ll need a capo on the 3rd fret! This lets you use easy chords.

Chords needed

This entire song uses these three chords, in this order, over and over again.

E –––0–––––1–––––3–––––0–––––0–––––
B –––1–––––1–––––0–––––1–––––1–––––
G –––0–––––2–––––0–––––0–––––0–––––
D –––2–––––0–––––0–––––2–––––0–––––
A –––0–––––––––––2–––––3–––––2–––––
E –––––––––––––––3–––––––––––––––––
    Am7   Dm7    G     C    C/B

Chord progression

The entire song uses this progression. Two measures (4 counts per measure) for each chord, except the C – which is split between 4 counts of “C” and 4 counts of “C/B”.

Am7   /   Dm7   /   G   /   C  C/B
