In this lesson we'll learn the song's intro. Remember that we're capoed at the 2nd fret; you'll notice that I'm playing an open C major shape chord, and that's how I'll be naming the chords with the capo on. However, this sounds out as a D major chord.

This song has a honky-tonk sound and feel, and uses a lot of dominant 7 chords to convey that. We'll be starting on C, then E7, A7, D7, and G7 (numerically, this is I-III-VI-II-V). Notice the walk-up from G to C at the end of the phrase.

Try to hold down all the notes in the chords to prevent as many "wrong" notes as possible from ringing out. Also practice your bass notes to get those solid.
