Once the vocal starts, the acoustic strums through the main progression of the tune. The first half of the progression is very similar to the intro. The strumming pattern will stay the same (quarter note strum on the 3rd beat of each measure, 8th note strums for the rest). Once again keep your strums even and relaxed for that rodeo feel.

The second half of the progression kicks off with a Gmaj7 chord for a different flavor. It ends off with a G/A chord which is known as the "soft V chord". Instead of going to the A chord, you are staying on the G chord but just moving the bass note up to A. This is a great option for setting things up to go back to the I chord of the progression.
