Notes:

  • Easy song - ideal for beginners
  • You can replace D/F# with D and Am/G with Am if you prefer although it does sound better with the bass notes if you are playing solo.
  • I have included two versions of D/F# which can both be found in the Chords Tab.
  • The thumb version flows more smoothly from Am/G → D/F# and sounds better.
