Here's a list of the 150+ lessons I have made PDFs for.
Capo 1st fret
I’ll teach this song using a capo on the 1st fret. The reason for this is so you can play G-C-D during the chorus sections of this song (which is very satisfying).
Chorus chords, full strumming
Just play G-C-D. For the D, I prefer the version below but you could just as well play a standard xx0232.
