This song has just two chords; A major and D major, each played for four bars, which continues in a loop throughout the entire song! Gerry tends to play these chords with a capo at the 2nd fret, swapping the chords for G major and C major. As I demo in the video, the resulting sound is the same. The basic chords and strumming is very much at beginner level.
The main focus of the video below is on how to use a looper pedal to build layers of acoustic guitar, first with the bass line, then chords, then the lead line. Finally, we'll look at how to use the A major scale to improvise our own lead lines.
