In this beginners guitar lesson series we’re going to learn to play 'Three Is A Magic Number' with the two easiest chords to play on guitar; E major and A major. This tutorial is one of a series of ten songs with these two chords.

Originally written by Bob Dorough and covered by many artists, we’re going to learn this song so you can jam along to the version of this song by the band Embrace - find their version at the bottom of this page!
