He there welcome to another one of my easy to play lessons, hope you get a chance to go visit my website. See all the lessons there, www.mrmusiccandada.com. Today I am going to show you real fine and very, very easy song to learn, it is called Don’t Worry, Be Happy, you should be able to play this in about 15 minutes. That is how easy it is.
So I am just going to go through the first part and break down to show you how to do it, okay. Chord wise we are only going to use three chords, first with your C note here, and every second note from that this will give you a Brad spread we call it, so it is your second note that will give you a C chord now, move everything up by one, your D here and this is a Dm chord, there is only one more, if you move your pinky down back to the C keeping other two right there. It is going to give you an F chord.
So we will just go through them again you have got your C, you got your Dm, move your pinky down to give you the F and then back to your C. Those are the only three chords you are going to need in the whole song, very easy.
For your right hand, we are going to start off here on this top, C and I will go through it nice and slowly here. It can help if you hum it to yourself or sing it out loud. We can go through it again here again, up to the C here. Okay, not let us put the chords with it okay. We are going to start off with our C, so we string the top C up here, we are going to go through the C, I am not going to do the D, there is a reggae beat here, we are going to be in type B you put to this music. Let us just go through how to play it and then you can add your B afterwards, okay.
So here we go C chord, now walk up to your Dm with your F back to your C again, okay so let us go through that again. C chord and you are up here on your top C, Dm, F chord, okay. We figure out that that is half of the song. So, work for it in a minute and we are going to do the next session.
Okay, the next part is—that is the chorus, so we just learned the fourth verse to it, it would be the same three chords again so let me go through it once for you, first nice and slow and then we will break it down.
See pretty simple, we are half way there, chord wise again just your C, Dm, your F and your C, it has not change. And with our right hand, starting on the E note this time, it helps if you hum it to yourself or sing it out loud, we will do that right hand again. So, let us put the left hand with this time okay, starting off with your C chord, up to your Dm, your fingers are going in mark in there, at one part. Go to your F, back to your C. We will do that one more time, okay.
Up to your Dm, your F chord and back to your C again, okay you go right back with your chorus again. I am going to do that verse, one more time for you.
Okay, so there you have the whole song Don’t Worry, Be Happy. It should not have taken you so long to learn. Good luck with it and have fun with it.
