I'll be playing my vintage Martin 00 guitar today, you can play this song with pretty much any guitar you have. Consider checking out my Better Strumming tutorial, which goes into the "basic strum" that we'll be using for today's song.

Here’s some terminology I’ll be using in the tutorial.

Harmonic cadence - a progression of at least two chords that concludes a phrase, section or piece of music. Becoming familiar with this device will improve your ability to play "on the fly". In this song we'll note the use of the Half cadence and the Plagal cadence (IV - I).

Triplets - a group of three notes to be performed in the time of two ordinary notes of the same kind.

Tag - a short concluding section, also known as a coda.
