CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to this Stand By Me Guitar Tutorial by Ben E. King!
If you’re starting out on guitar, this is a must to learn as it’s super simple, but sounds great and will get you practicing easy open chords shapes and easy chord transitions. The great thing about this classic tune is that the same chord progression is repeated over and over throughout. So there’s not very much to memorise, this is a great campfire singalong song.

Big thanks to Eric Ben for his vocals on this track, check out his Youtube channel here – https://www.youtube.com/user/ericbengayomali
