I wonder why Justin uses the F bar chord? To me, in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZ-kXZsUa_w, it looks like they use the Fmaj7.

Maybe they use Fmaj7 live cause it is easier to get to. Maybe it isn't so much Fmaj7 as just F minus the bass note. The male guitarist clearly isn't playing a barre chord F, but with a bass player, accordion, second guitar etc he can afford not to.

I checked the video about this song and I got confused by the rhythm laid out by Justin.

It seems to me that in the intro and the the verse, the rhythm is 2/4, based on the way he counts. But when it comes to the part that we need use a strumming pattern to add more energetic feelings to the song, the rhythm becomes 4/4.

Am I missing something here ?

It's 4/4 throughout, at around 240BPM.

Are you getting confused at where he suggests only playing 1 or 2 beats per bar to begin with?


If you want another song to practice the chords and strumming pattern, check out Wake Me Up by Avicii. It uses a very similar strumming pattern, with a couple chord variations during the intro. It is however marginally faster, but using a 124BPM 16th note pattern (equivalent to 248BPM if played as 4/4)

I checked some sheets music on the internet and found that it is actually 2/4.

And yes, I got confused about the first few minutes, when he said play 1 or 2 beats per bar.

240 bpm is very fast, how is it even possible to strum at that speed...??!!  :(
