Using the Chord Scale in a Song

These chords are right out of the scale. The timing is a bit tricky. Some of the chords fall on the off beat. This is called syncopation. Learning to hear, feel, and play with this kind of timing is great for your musicianship. Familiarize yourself with the song through repeated listening. It will come easier that way. Loop a measure, or a couple measures, and listen repeatedly with the Tunefox player. Watching the video several times will help as well.
