Introduction: How to Play "Sugar" by Maroon 5 on Guitar

Hi y'all! I was looking through the instructables contests and saw the "sugar" contest. And all the entries were about cupcakes! (Now I like cupcakes, don't get me wrong, but can't we be just a little more creative?)

Sarcasm aside, in this instructable I am going to show you how to play "Sugar" by Maroon 5 on guitar.

Here is a video link for the original song.

Step 1: What'chu Gonna Need

You're going to need these things;

1) A guitar (duh)

2) A capo

3) Some soul, baby!

Step 2: Let Us Begin

This song uses the same six chords throughout the entire song. These chords are...

C, Am, G, F, Dm, and Gm. The tab (guitar-speak for "where to put your fingers") for these chords are above.

NOTE: This is not an instructable on how to play guitar or read tab. I am only showing you how to play this particular song. (Although I plan on making future instructables on how to play several different instruments. I'll get there......eventually.)

So, you got your guitar, you know what chords to use, so put your capo on the first fret and start strummin'!
