All of the chords in this song are fretted in the first 3 frets of the neck, or open position. The verse uses 3 chords: D, E minor, and A7. It is helpful to note that all three of these chords are connected via the 2nd fret, taking advantage of these chord connections will make the quick changes in this song possible.

The chorus uses G and D7 chords, which at first glance seem to have no relation whatsoever, but turn out to have a shape connection that is demonstrated in the video. We will think about how to transition between these chords efficiently with dexterity and coordination.
