Right Handed Charts:
Left Handed Charts:
- Level Of Ease: Easy... a great song for beginners
- Song Key: C Major... no sharps or flats
- 4/4: This means there are 4 quarter-note or crotchet beats per bar. This can be counted as
| 1 2 3 4 | or |1& 2& 3& 4&| etc.
- The song starts at approximately 1.02 minutes into the video.
- The hyphen between 2 chords in a bar means the chords share equal beat counts in that bar, which in this case is 2 beats per chord (4/4 time), e.g., | F - C | means 2 beat counts on F and 2 beat counts on C.
- I haven't included all the bars with split-timing as above, as it occurs right throughout the song. I have only included them where I felt they were needed.
- F6 chord is easy to play... just play an F chord, and add your pinkie on the 3rd fret, second string (D)... see chart above.
- ||: F - C | F - C | F - C | G :|| means you play the 4 bars and repeat them once again, unless stated otherwise... 8 bars in total.
