Here's how to play Space Oddity by David Bowie on acoustic guitar.
This song uses open chords, but also many barre chords. However, Bowie in the music video for this song doesn't use barre chords, but rather uses the technique of having the thumb over the top of the neck. Therefore, I chose to teach this song as faithful as possible to how David play it in the music video, which you can find further down this page.
