Summary: IDGAF

This is a very cool pop track that is driven by the main guitar riff. In this guitar lesson Simone will take you through that main guitar riff that consists of triad versions of barre chords, so will suit an intermediate player slightly more than a beginner.

Big Chords: Full Barre

If you want to really challenge yourself, you can play the full barre chord version of each chord, rather than just the three notes on each chord, as written above. The chord shapes would therefore be:
