Hey Jealoust Chord Chart
by Gin Blossoms

Welcome to my Hey Jealousy chord chart by the Gin Blossoms. I absolutely love this song. I used to do it live with my band all the time. This song is pretty much the same 4 chords over an over again. Yay! We have D, A, E and F#m. If you are not good with Barre chords yet, no worries. You the simple fix shown below.

Now, be forewarned, this is an easy version of the song. The real song hops in the verses, meaning some of the chords change on the up beat which can be a bit tricky for beginners. I will give you the general strumming patterns below as well as the hopped version. So please don't send me any hate mail that this isn't exactly like the original, the strumming is way more intricate than I am showing here.

Strumming:
1 2  3+ 4+
D D DU DU

Hopped Strumming: Second Chord Changes On Up Strum
D             E                
1 2  3+ 4 + 1 2 3+ 4 +
D D DU DU DD DU DU

Strum I like to use on verses:
D                  E                      
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
D   D    DU DU   U    U   UDU
