Avicii’s Wake Me Up is a hit that has taken the world by storm, almost everyone has heard it and likes it so I decided to share this lesson so that you too can play this timeless hit and impress all your friends.
The song is quite simple, it is one progression played over and over again and has 3 chords. The chords are B Minor, G Major and D Major in that order.
It is played with a fast strumming pattern that is explained in the video and has one barre chord which may give new players some trouble.
As with almost everything on the guitar practice makes perfect, if you are struggling to press down all the strings on the barre chord just keep at it. Remember to have your thumb firmly pressed against the back of the guitar neck as this is where the pressure comes from. Keep playing the chord and eventually your fingers will develop the strength to allow all the notes ring clearly.
