Vance Joy’s song, Riptide is a fun and catchy tune with a really simple chord progression. 4-note chord diagrams are below, but you can make it easier by only fretting and strumming the first 3 strings (see 3-note Major and Minor chords) OR make it harder by playing the full open chords.

| Am G | C |

To start, play 2 strums on Am, 2 strums on G, and 4 strums on C.

Work on switching between chords and remember to take it slowly at first!

Good luck!
