The bridge of our song comes in before our first chorus, adding more to this really cool song form. The lyrics are setting up the infectious hook of the song which we will cover in our next lesson. First let's learn our bridge section, which includes some new chords and moving slash chords that play nicely underneath the vocal.

The chord progression for the bridge is:

|| G - Gsus4 G - A G/B A/C# - D - G - Gsus4 G - E D/F# E/G# - A Emi D/F# ||

The first four bars start off with a movement from G to Gsus4, emphasizing C to B over the G chord. We then move to A which is followed by the same movement of slash chords that we played in our verses, resolving to D.

The next four measures starts off the same way with our G to Gsus4, followed by a change from E walking up bass notes to D/F# to E/G#. We will then end this section from A, to Emi to D/F#. Lots of movements and slash chords in this section.
