"Wild World" by Cat Stevens (guitar lesson)

PDF chord sheet available: http://playsongnotes.com/lessons/282

Hey friends! Here’s my lesson for “Wild World” by Cat Stevens. Played in the key of C, this is an intermediate song (requiring only 1 barre chord) which offers many opportunities to add fills & riffs in between your normal strums. I’ll teach you the intro, verse, chorus, the various riffs and fills, as well as walking you through a few different strumming patterns. I hope you find this helpful!
