"Free Fallin'" is the opening track from Tom Petty's 1989 solo album, Full Moon Fever. In 2007 John Mayer included a live cover version on his live album Where the Light Is.
Alternative (maybe easier) version:
      - Use the transposer to turn the chords 3 half step(s) down.
      - Put a capo on fret 3 (if you want to stay in the same key).

    Great song. What I like doing which makes it a little fancier sounding and also is a little easier to play is first I transpose to the key of C. Then, instead of F, I play Csus4 and instead of G I play Gsus4. My ring finger stays of the third fret of the A string the whole time and I use my index finger for Csus4 and my index and middle for Gsus4.

Feel free to leave a comment!




Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming patterns, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
