This Childish Gambino song has a really cool groove using minor 7th & 9th chords and is a great lesson for intermediate players looking to learn how to groove on a simple chord progression. Simone takes you through the song in great detail!

Chords: The Main Chord Shapes

There are really only 3 chords for this song, which are D minor 9, G minor 7 and A minor 7. These are really cool funky chords that create a chilled out vibe for the song!

The rhythm Funky groove!

For the rhythm of the track, we are using a really cool 16th note strumming pattern. The main pattern is shown below, but remember that you can also add extra ghost note hits, just as Simone describes in the video lesson. We recommend starting with this groove below, and then gradually add the ghost notes as you get more comfortable with the tune.

All done?
