Heart Of Gold Chord Chart
by Neil Young

Another simple song using what I call the four main beginner chords Em, G, C and D. Heart of Gold is a classic and there are a couple ways you can go about playing this. In this song, the verse chords have two beats, so you can simply strum two down beats per chords, or you could a little more fancy with the suggest strumming below.

Strum:                  or  
1 + 2 +  3 + 4  +                1 + 2 +a  3 + 4 +a
D   D U D    D U                D   DDU  D    DDU

Intro Strum:
Em                           D        Em
1  +  2 +  3 +  4 +     1  +  2 +  3 + 4 +
D D D D D D D D     D D D D
