I'll teach this song in a made easy arrangement using an acoustic guitar, but any guitar is suitable to learn the song this way. We'll break the parts down to simple open chords, and add an easy strumming pattern so you can jam along with the track. We'll also learn to strum at a few different dynamic levels from quiet to loud. As a bonus, I'll teach the iconic single note fuzz riff that the song is known for on acoustic!

The tune opens with the chorus chord progression, then transitions to the verse chord progression. We'll move through each verse/chorus cycle a total of three times throughout. The chorus is to be played at a higher dynamic level, while the verses come down to a lower dynamic level.

Any guitar tuned to standard tuning is suitable to play this song!

In the following lessons, we'll talk about a simple strumming pattern, open chords, and dynamics. We are in the key of E major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 134 BPM.
