The intro is 8 bars long. There is rhythm guitar playing solo for 4 bars, then the band kicks in. This song uses only 3 chords, G, C and D. Consider using the "advanced" G chord, using the 2nd, 3rd, 4th fingers.

In this lesson we'll review basic strum and explain dividing each bar between 2 chords. Syncopation is naturally created by repeatedly changing chords on the UP strum of beat 2+. The rhythm guitar enters solo and we want to pay attention to the high strings during our strum.

Learn this progression and you will know almost ALL of the song!

I IV IV V
G C C D
I IV IV I
G C C * G

Finally, we'll learn the signature/optional walk down used throughout the song, which walks down from step-wise on the bass: C, B, A, then lands on G as we move to our G chord. Pay special attention to the count on this move!
