This is a simple acoustic strum-along arrangement for Today, using a capo on fret 1 to enable the song to be played with some open chords. I’ve not done anything particularly fancy or complicated here.

  1. How come this song is played differently on acoustic than on electric?

  2. Fäunö Ermïtäñö

    amazing…Just amazing

  3. So glad I found your videos. You cut out all the talking and get right down to what I'm looking for and that's chords, tabs and strumming patterns. Thanks for the great tutorials!

  4. love it, but I'm a beginner & really want to learn how to play this song so this was no help. But your beyond amazing at playing, don't quit

  5. This tutorial is simply perfect, you did a great job!

  6. I'm having trouble on the strumming any tips?

  7. Sweet piece mate! thnxs!

  8. I'm glad I stumbled on to your site. This is an awesome lesson. Kinda strange looking at your hands but what the hey.

  9. Wish I would have learned left handed when I started. I'm a lefty so it's difficult for me to use a pick still and I've been playing about a year and a half, I think it would be even more difficult to try to make chord shapes with my right hand now that I've learned the other way.

  10. This was cute asf I wish I could play my guitar like this lol

  11. I have nylon strings so yeah Sounds like shit on my acoustic

  12. Thank you. Great lesson, easy to follow.

  13. Really easy to follow, and I love the song! However, my acoustic guitar makes this song sound like shit 🙁 I don't know why, my guitar is tuned, but it may not be perfect (even though chords sound pleasant) I don't understand. My A and E minor sound different than yours, though still pleasant. Sadly, this ruins the song.

  14. Nice video,whats the strum pattern?
