Welcome to this Soon You’ll Get Better Guitar Tutorial by Taylor Swift Feat. The Dixie Chicks!
This is perhaps my second favourite song from her new album, I love that she’s gone back to some of her old country roots. This song is incredibly emotional and has some really meaningful lyrics which I’m sure a lot of people can relate to. Guitar wise it’s a fairly simple song to play and has a nice fingerpicking riff in the intro and verses. In the video I’ll teach you fingerpicking patterns you can use as well as an easy strumming pattern.

A big thank you to Amanda again for her beautiful vocals in the song playthrough at the end of the video. You can check out her youtube channel here – https://www.youtube.com/user/XxMissAmandaLeexX

C                            C/B
  The buttons of my coat were, tangled in my hair
Am                             G                        F
   In doctor's office lighting, I didn't tell you I was scared
G                                 C
  That was the first time we were there

Holy orange bottles, each night I pray to you
Am                             G                       F
   Desperate people find faith, so now I pray to Jesus too
G
  And I say to you

Am                           G                          F
   You like the nicer nurses, you make the best of a bad deal
G                         C

I'll paint the kitchen neon, I'll brighten up the sky
Am                          G                              F

'Cause I have to
