Imagine Guitar Chord Chart by John Lennon

Welcome to my Imagine guitar chord chart. This song is by John Lennon and it's actually a pretty simple guitar song. It's usually one of the first songs I teach my beginner guitar students and it's a great song to play on an acoustic guitar. 

The strumming pattern we are going to use is a eighth note strumming pattern that has a little bit of dynamics to it. We are going to accent the 2 and 4 count. Check it out below.

Strumming:
