This is a lovely song from the noughties that features a lot of chord extensions and has a really lovely summery feel to it (owing largely to the capo on the 4th fret and that folky strumming pattern).
Chord extensions are essentially extra notes added to chords - these are usually notes borrowed from the the major scale e.g an F add 9 is an F major chord with the addition of the 9th from the scale (F G A Bb C D E F...G!). These additional notes really add a flavour to chords and are definitely worth exploring.
- Check out the audio below and work through each chord change nice and slowly! The picking at the end is particularly tricky at full tempo!
- Practise changing through the chords with a single strum and analyse where your fingers are and where they need to go. Are they moving in groups or by themselves?
- Visualise the chord changes in your head
