Brown Eyed Girl Chord Chart by Van Morrison


Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison is a fun beginner song I use with a lot of students. I like it because it uses the 4 most basic guitar chords I start my guitar students on. So let's take a look at the Brown Eyed Girl Guitar Chart below.

I have skipped the intro because that part is usually played by an electric guitar. I usually have student come in on right after the intro. Keep in mind the first G chord of the verse is played BEFORE the singer starts singing.


Strum:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   or   1 + 2 + 3 +  4 +
D   DU      D             D   DU    U DU
