Beginning to see the light - VU
He's playing c c7 f

From c7 to f he plays the b flat in c7 then a then momentarily the open g before playing the f chord to give it a swing

Thanks! :D

Should've known that that he went from c to f via c7, but in the video he seemed to do something funky with his index finger.

I was going to say it's easier to play in D but then I noticed you're talking about Beginning to see the Light and not 'What Goes On'.

Try playing Mull of Kintyre, that's an easy one and good one to learn on :)

a hymn? :P

Would be hard to get the strumming/notes between chords right if played with different chords.

Mull of Kintyre a hymn?

I guess it has hymnal qualities.

Gotta admit I only learnt it a few years back to sing with a Scottish guy I know.

it's simply pluck the bass note then two strums on the associated chord afterwards. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger :)

off the top of my head it would be

D G D G A D verse

D G D G A D chorus

lower key verse and chorus chords :

A D A D E A
