Here's how to play Everybody Hurts by REM.
This is one of the most popular guitar riffs ever and works great on electric or acoustic guitar!
The main riff, verses and chorus are all at a beginner level. The "Don't throw your hand" section uses much harder chords more at an intermediate level, so this section would be one to revisit later if you're not ready for that yet.
All the best with learning this great song!
