Notes

  • Level Of Ease: Easy
  • If you want to see how the Intro is played in terms of notes played...
    Beneath Your Beautiful Intro
  • For beginners, the Intro can be played as | D - E | G - A | D - E | G - A | - it still sounds fine. In this case each chord has a duration of 2 beats, i.e., | D - E | - 2 beats on D and 2 beats on E. This could also be written as | D / E / |
  • Song Key: D Major... 2 sharps (F#, C#)
  • 4/4 Time: - 4 beats per bar with each beat value equal to a quarter-note or crotchet.
  • You will notice that bars are sometimes used in the song charts. This always occurs during Intro's, Instrumentals, Outro's etc., to allow for accuracy in timing and chord duration especially if you are counting each bar. This also occurs at the end of a bar where chords are played without lyrics. Bars are also added when there is an alternative 'feel' to the song, in this case - the end of the second chorus where there is some 'ad lib' going on.
  • Generally chords are placed directly over words where the chord change occurs on the word. Chords placed before a word means the chord is strummed before the word. The same applies to chords placed after a word. If you listen carefully as you play along you will hear these changes.
