Summary: Rockstar

This track further cements Post Malone as a songwriter and vocalist. It once again has a different feel and vibe to his previous tracks, and the combination of a deep R&B bass and tranquil keys with a cool chord progression make for a really laid back and cool song. In this lesson, we will learn how to emulate those chords and rhythm of the track on acoustic guitar.

The Chords: The Loop!

Firstly, remember that we need the capo in the 3rd fret. From there, we only really use three chords in this song. The two main chords are Em and C major. We play these chords for two bars each before changing, like this: Em /// //// C /// ////. We can also use a cool D chord on the 4th beat of each second bar, which we'll go into below. Firstly here are the chords:

If you like the sound of the Dadd4 chord, you can simply add it just before moving to the next chord, on the 4th beat of the bar. This would therefore be: Em /// /// Dadd4 C /// /// Dadd4. Give it a try!

Rhythm: Strumming Pattern

We can use the same strumming during the entire song, and as usual with R&B style songs we are using a 16th note pattern. The exact hits, as Simone describes in the video, are as follows:

Jackie Chan

This is a definitely summer hit, if we've ever heard one! Although Post Malone is not the main name on this track, it definitely has a Post Malone feeling, and it has some really cool guitar chords to learn.
