    Thanks for posting this! It’s a very useful post for a beginning guitarist who wants to learn a popular song more quickly. Would you suggest using something like the Bridge chord progression for the Instrumental sections in the song?

      Hey hello Abbee! Thank you for your comment! I forgot to put the chords for the instrumental part. Yes, the chords are the same during the instrumental section. Thanks for pointing that out!
