CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to this Tiny Dancer Guitar Tutorial by Elton John! In my opinion this is his best song, and just has such a great road trip/end of day feel to it. It’s an extremely easy song to play with lots of simple chord shapes. The only thing to note is the amount of chords in the song structure, so it’ll be handy to write them down when playing. I’m super excited to see the upcoming biopic, Rocketman that documents the career of this amazing musician.

My awesome friend Emile Battour has provided the vocals with his amazing voice. He’s also done a live looping cover of this song be sure to check out out below.
