Here's how to play 505 by Arctic Monkeys from their 2007 album Favourite Worst Nightmare.

This is probably the most popular two chord songs ever. Both those chords are minor; D minor and E minor respectively. In the video, we'll look at how these chords can be played as open chords (for beginners) and also as barre chords (for intermediates).

As I write this, the song is the bands fourth most streamed song on Spotify, so it's well worth learning and jamming along to the original recording!

In the video, I talk a little about how chorus and reverb are used to great effect on the original recording of this song.
