Praying Chord Chart by Kesha

Welcome to my Praying chord chart by Kesha. This is a really great song and has some cool syncopations in the rhythm. If you want to make it super easy, you can just play base notes on this songs, or you can use the full chords. We will use a capo on the 3rd fret to making this easier to play using my favorite chords: G, Em, C and D. Can't go wrong with a good pop song.

The rhythm can be a bit tricky since a lot of the chords change on the up beat (the and's represented by "+")

Rhythm on Bass:
Em   Em  D      G   G      G    G      G
1 + 2 +    3 + 4 +   1 + 2 +    3 + 4 +  
D      D    D   D      D      D    D      D

Strumming we will use:

1 2 + 3 4+
D DU D DU.
