I got this old guitar

But it's all I need

Bring in the kick drum

  1. The second to last phrase that goes F Bb Gm D…the D doesnt sound right to me. Anyone else?

  2. Mayastiefel

    -5 is easiest for beginners

  3. On the final Gm, I fingerpick C, E, A, C, E, A, G, A and then strum the F

  4. It sounds good when you replace dm7 with f

  5. What is the key of this song originally

  6. dacodington

    The way I played it was, when it came to the Dm7, I played Dm, Dm7, then C in quick succession.

  7. A Dm can sound better than a Dm7 for this song.

  8. Capo on the third fret for a tenor sound really good :)
