Sweet Child Of Mine Chord Chart by Guns N Roses

Welcome to my Sweet Child Of Mine chord chart by the amazing Guns N Roses. I usually prefer to play Guns N Roses on the drums but this is a pretty cool song. It's not to bad other than the solo has a B chord in it. If you don't know a B chord, I would just play a B bass note (2nd fret on the A string) and play the chord for everything else.

If you know this song very well, yes I am missing a G chord in a few spots, but this is a slightly simplified version. Most chord are a full measure but some are two beats so pay attention to where those are located.

Beginners, 4 down strums per chord will work just fine.

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

Strum 2:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
D DU       UDU

Strum 3:
>       >          >
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
DD DD DD DD

Intro: D D C C G G D D x4

 D                                   D                       C                                  C
She's got a smile that it seems to me Reminds me of childhood memories

Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky

Now and then when I see her face It takes me away to that special place

She's got eyes of the bluest sky and if they thought of rain

I'd hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain
        D                                D                                C                     C
His hair reminds me of a warm safe place where as a child I'd hide

And pray for the thunder and for the rain to quietly pass me by
