An Acoustic Guitar (either steel or nylon strings will work)
A pick (any size you prefer)
(Note: This is an easy- intermediate level song, these instructions are built for those that already play basic guitar with tabs and know a little about music. Even so, I have created as simple of a version as I can for those willing to try something new or above their level.)
Step 1: Tune Your Guitar
Step 4: Chords
Step 5: Chords
Note: This is a bar chord, but one of the easier versions of a bar chord.
You will be barring everything on the 4th fret, except for the lowest E string with your index finger.
If you have not yet learned bar chords, now is a good time! Or you can play the E Major chord in the next step in it's place, but it will not sound as good to the listener and it will not sound like the original song.
