Old Town Road - Beginner Lesson

Old Town is a really fun song to play and just uses 4 chords. You need a capo up on the 4th fret to play along with the song, but can practise it without a capo just fine.


The chord shapes used are E, G, D and C.

The other great thing about the song is that you can play it as simply as you like. Just start by strumming each chord once if you're a complete beginner, and be patient - it will take a little time before you can play it fast enough to play with the song.


If you've been playing a little while and know these chords already, then experiment with the strumming patterns. Try: down, down, down up - playing on the 1, 2, 3, 4 +.

As I said, be patient if you can't quite change chords fast enough yet. You'll get it in no time if you practise for a few minutes every day!
