On the 2nd verse we've got :

Thanks for your answers ! :)

Quick changes for the counting of 4 & 1

D chord
D Major7 chord
D7 chord

Then on to
G chord
D/F# chord

That last one is what you are asking about.
It is tabbed as:

e --- 3
B --- 3
G --- 2
D --- 0
A --- x
E --- 2

It is a classic passing chord for a run down from G to E minor, emphasising the bass notes going from G -> F# - > E

It is named D over F#
If you strum all 6 strings then technically it is a Dsus4/F#

If you mute the top e string and only play the lowest 5 then D/F# is technically correct


Everyone calls both versions D/F# anyway.

Lots of songs use 4 finger big G, D/F#, Emin7 and D or Dsus4 with the 3rd and 4th fingers constantly holding down the B and e strings at fret 3.
Wonderwall by Oasis does this,
You're Beautiful by James Blunt is another.
The A Team by Ed Sheeran if I recall correctly.
etc etc

Hello, I'm also having trouble figuring out the "(Em7) dont carry (Dsus) " chords.

They seem to be played differently in the video than the chords I can find. Any help appreciated.

Bonus question: is G in this song played with 3 or 4 fingers?

Thanks so much!

Edit: sorry, rereading your response and I realized you gave me G instead of Dsus. Dsus chord please and thank you?

I'm stuck on these chords too, but for different reasons. My 3rd and 4th fingers seem to want to do a different thing to what my brain is telling them to. For some reason as I'm switching my 1st and 2nd fingers to Dsus4/F# they think that's the go ahead to take their fingers off the E & B strings. I reckon this is gonna take me a while to get sorted. I can do the verses and the nanana refrain, and I can sing (badly) but it's the first song I've attempted and I've only just started the beginners course 2 weeks ago.

If you are only 2 weeks in to learning. this song is not aimed at you. You're trying something with too great a degree of difficulty. Learn the songs at your stage.

On the music practice theme that is not academic but sort of traditional there are chord "runs".

It might be easier to think of finger picking.  You can hold a G chord but pluck a low B note as the base note of the chord.  Usually or automatically we assume that we play G note as the base note of the G chord.  And to be fair - we usually do.

But sometimes fancier options are - well - interesting and sound - well - good.

Some those base elements can be combined so chords C -> D -> Em  might have base notes E -> F# -> G

And those building blocks can be used to complexify music and make for differing arrangements. 

Folk guitarists sort of use it all the time and probably object to it being called the "runs" lol.

I forgot to mention. I had a guitar a few years ago, so I already know most of the chords in the song. I decided to start from the beginning of the beginners course, as I only knew a few chords and parts of songs. I'm finding that learning this song, (my favourite song of all time) is great practice for switching between all the chords I already know and it gives me a little challenge to learn the couple in the chorus which I don't know.

I've gotten spoiled working on songs from Justin's songbooks. I bought all of them a year ago.

Sure hope he's starting a new book for the new songs?

I've been working much of this morning making a song sheet for Hey Jude.  Justin did a great job explaining all the parts.

I had to view the lesson a few time to figure this one out but I think I finally got it except for when to use Dsus4 and Dsus4/F#. My guess is that it doesn't make too much difference.

I did add an A7 at "make" at the end of the verse "...[A]begin to [A7]make it [D]better." My ears like it that way.
