Fundamental Chord Structure:
Basic chord progression: G-C-D-G with a few C at times replaced by Am. Its the rough pattern as there are many small chords strikes that can be taken as "touch chords" (akin to touch notes.)

Original scale: G major

Chords transposed a scale of C: C-F-G-C (6 semitone below this scale)- (Transposition explained)

Roman numeral form notation: I-IV-V-I (modal progression) - (Roman numeral notation explained)

Strum Pattern:

Option 1: Fast strumming - |(D'UU)(DU)(D'UU)(DU)|

Option 2: Play broken chords with fast sweeps. Try and incorporate that into the above patters as well.

Verses : Try |(DU')(DDU')(DU')(D'DU')|
(Explanation - 4 beats per meter; the stroke that is marked with a (') is played and muted; the beats in brackets are divided into subunits of equal duration as noted). (More on how to read strum patterns)

Between the meter chord changes occur quite often so be careful with your strum. strum is more important than chords in this song.

Playings Tips and Song Notes:
The chords are simple, elegant and endlessly changing. Its quite a refreshing and up-beat song especially for all those who can't stop themselves from changing chords even though there isn't a change! Its a basic pattern. The music reflects influences ranging from Pete Seeger (The Brothers Four), Joan Baez and Peter, Paul & Mary. The peculiar strum pattern is remescent of a rendition of 500 Miles and also vaguely of Where have all the flowers gone, though significantly raised in tempo.

Try singing along or playing along with the track to best guess the strum and chord positions.

The song is another piece of gem from the illustrious horses and is perfect for all those who love those 60's-70's folk / guitar ballads. Its a real treat to both listen as well as play even on a single guitar - just mind your strum. Breaking the strum is going to break the charm of the song. And, try playing it on an acoustic nylon guitar for the best effects. If you respect that genre one bit, please don't play it on a electric guitar - that will be a grave injustice to yourself as well as the song.

Difficulty: Beginner level
