- Level Of Ease: Fairly easy once you get used to all the chords with bass notes. They all work well if you are finger-picking. For beginners that are not used to finger-picking, you can just strum the straight chord, e.g., instead of G/B, simply strum a G chord. The same applies to D7/F# - just strum a D7 chord. Replace D5/A with a D chord.
- G/B means you play a G chord leading with a B note instead of the usual G bass note. I have used the most common variation of this chord... x20033. You can experiment with your finger positioning... you may prefer to use fingers 2, 3, and 4 instead od 1, 3, and 4 - you could even try fingers 2 and 4 where the 2nd finger plays the B bass-note while the 4th finger is used to play strings 1 & 2 (mini-barre).
- The easiest way to play D7/F# is displayed on the chart, written as 200212... play a normal D7 with fingers 1, 3, & 4 (instead of 1, 2, & 3) and play the F# bass note with your second finger - string 6 fret 2.
- Another way of playing D7/F# is to play a normal D7 chord using fingers 1, 2 and 3 and if you have a good hand-span or narrow guitar neck, you can use your thumb to play the F# bass note on the 6th string.
- D5/A is a 5 chord leading with an A bass note...x0023x. A5 chord is a 2-note chord consisting of the 1st and 5th notes of the major scale which in this case are the notes D and A... because the chord is D5 we take notes from the D Major Scale which reads D-E-F#-G-A-B-C# with the 1st & 5th notes - D and A. Instead of leading with the usual D note, we lead with the A or 5th note as the chord suggests (D5/A)...x0023x equates to the notes x-A-D-A-D-x.
- 5 chords are also known as power chords.
- Song Key: E♭ Major... 3 flats - B♭, E♭, A♭
- Song Key with Capo on 3: C Major - No sharps or flats
- The hyphen between 2 chords means they share equal timing, e.g., | Am - G/B | means 2 beats on Am and 2 beats on G/B.
- Where you see | Am7 / / G/B | - this means 3 beats on Am7 and 1 beat on G/B. The repeat sign (/) is used to repeat the previous chord within a bar... more help if you need it.
