Here's a guitar lesson for a great Beatle's song, Norwegian Wood. These chords are a variation on theirs.

This song has some fast chord changes but none of the chords are particularly difficult. For anyone starting out you can play it much slower and slowly work up to speed.

TIP: Don't get too caught up in playing a song exactly how you've heard it. Experiment with the chords and the rhythm. By pushing the bounds of what you know, experimenting, you'll actually find the basics come more easily.





Norwegian Wood
by Lennon/McCartney

D5 G A G D A G D C Em7 D
I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me.

D5 G A G D A G D C Em7 D
She showed me her room, isn't it good, norwegian wood?

Em Em7 A7 A7sus4
She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere,

Em Em7 A7 A7sus4
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.

D5 G A G D A G D C Em7 D
I sat on a rug, biting my time, drinking her wine,

D5 G A G D A G D C Em7 D
We talked until two and then she said, "It's time for bed"

Em Em7 A7 A7sus4
She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.

Em Em7 A7 A7sus4
I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath

D5 G A G D A G D C Em7 D
And when I awoke, I was alone, this bird had flown.

D5 G A G D A G D C Em7 D
So I lit a fire, isn't it good, norwegian wood.
