I'll be teaching you a basic strum as a reference for this song, but it is repeatedly broken up by the short chord progression.

Both the "A" and "B" sections consist of 1/2 bar of E major, 1/2 bar of Dsus2, and 1 bar of AMajor, with a very strong emphasis on beat 2. So that is nearly an entire song on a TWO bar chord pattern!

I'll teach you the basic strum pattern, show you how to break it up for the constant 1/2 bars in this song, we'll identify and emphasize beat 2, and then we'll do a nice slow play through.
