Wake Me Up - Avicii

An embedded YouTube video is missing from here because you have video cookies disabled.

In this guitar lesson, we look at how to play Wake Me Up by Avicii. This song has the tricky Bm barre chord in it, so I also offer an easier alternative by using a capo at 2nd fret. The strumming is also a challenge, but mainly because of the speed of the song. Take the time to get it right at a slower speed and you'll get it no problem!

No capo version (tricky)

Intro and chorus
