Starman is not a simple song to play though! The intro especially always drove me nuts, but the rest of the song is a big mix of open and barre chords, and they jump around a lot. Bowie tended to play E-shape barre chords with his thumb on the low E string rather than barring with the first finger as I’m doing (and his way may have simplified things a bit).

I’ve included a guide to a few variations on the intro, finishing up on what I think is actually being played on the record.

The strumming also varies wildly through the song, and helps to lend each section its own feel.
