In this tutorial we'll learn the 4 chords of the song along with the Boom Chuck/chick strumming pattern that make this song fly down the tracks! Although this song was originally recorded in the key of F, we'll play in the key of E with easy, open chords and ONE quick barre chord. If you're new to barre chords, no time like the present to get started! I'll give you some friendly advice on how to get there.

If you're a total beginner, don't let the barre chord scare you off this song, as a bonus lesson I'll teach you how to use your capo and a different set of chords to avoid the barre chord question completely. Our central guitar part holds down the song, while GT's awesome backing tracks give us all the muted, slap-back rockabilly bounce that is the hallmark of this style!

We're playing in the key of E major, in 4/4 time at a cut tempo of 115 BPM (effectively 230 BPM).
