Stand By Me - Ben E King

Here's how to play the wonderful song 'Stand By Me' by Ben E. King.

We're using a capo at 2nd fret so we can use the chord G, Em, C and D while still keeping in the key of the original so you can play along to the record!

See the chord sheet links above. The strumming pattern is just below the video. Get more help with this strumming pattern here.

The important thing is to keep your hand moving the same as your normal 8th strumming. If there’s a pause at any point, it will go wrong. This can be tough but you will get it! If you really struggle, you’ll want to master your Level 3 strumming before attempting this.
