In this Give A Little Bit guitar lesson video, I will show you all the chords to this acoustic classic by Supertramp.

The tuning is standard tuning. You will also notice that Roger Hodgson is using a a 12-string acoustic on the original recording. So if you have a 12-string you will be able to make it sound like the album, but you can also use a standard 6-string acoustic like I do in this lesson and it will still sound great.

Roger Hodgson is one of rock’s greatest songwriters, and the cool chord work found throughout “Give A Little Bit” puts this on great display.

I will teach each section of the song in the order that it appears. Be sure you to pay attention to the different endings the same riff can have throughout the song.

I hope you guys enjoy learning this acoustic classic from Supertramp!
