The Chords

This has not been tabbed but all the chord positions and names are detailed for you. The chords that are used are G, Am7/G, and D7Sus/G, with the G note (3rd fret top E string) being played throughout. These chord changes also help produce the underlying change of note on the G string (from open G to A) that gives the intro its theme and distinctiveness. Many a guitarist has just used G, Am and C to play this, but, if you try this sequence of chords, you will notice that they are far removed from the original.

The Strumming

The emphasis on some of the down strokes provide some extra attack in key places and combines with the straighter more even pattern to produce yet another great progression of chords for you to learn.

    Andy, I really connected with lesson on Take it Easy. I am 62 and just recently was gifted with an acoustic guitar for therapy due to a very rare painful nerve condition. I practice hours a day put it seemed that I lacked rhythm until I saw your lesson on line. You have a very special teaching talent in that it shows you care for the beginners without being pretentious. When I’m able, an order for your lessons is first on my list! Good luck to you and thanks again!

    What a great video lesson to help make this classic Eagles song sound just that much better. We play this song in our band and as recently as last evening we incorporated these chords into the intro and it sounded great. Thank you for the insight. I look forward to watching many more of these videos.
