Well done Pamparius, thats a nice easy one for the ESD and good to see someone else putting in sounds to help those who need strumming patterns. Lets hope it becomes the norm!

Full marks A+

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

That really is a surprisingly enjoyable tune, and not one I would have normally considered having a go at.

I'm going through a barre chord phase at the moment where - after months of struggling with the bloomin things - the muscles in my fingers and wrist seem to have got the message and barre fretting seems almost as natural now as holding open chords. As such I'm trying to devour as many easy tunes with barre chords as I can, and this is a great example.

Is that actually Owen Wilson playing the guitar?
