Here's how to play Cecilia by Simon & Garfunkel, a simple three chord song that's great for beginners!

Beginners should focus on playing the three chords G, C and D major to the beat and playing along with Andy in the video.

More advancing beginner and intermediate players should try to really nail the strumming pattern we look at later in the video, along with playing along to the original recording for maximum benefit!
