Take It Easy Chord Chart by The Eagles

I love the Eagles and this is my Take It Easy chord chart. Very simple chords and strumming make it a good beginner guitar song. Uses G, D, C, Em and Am. All very simple open chords. I would probably use a couple different strumming patterns as the intro has a little bit of a different feel the rest of the song. They will be very similar with 1 little adjustment.

Try playing them back to back to see how the feel changes.

Intro Strumming:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
DU D    DU DU

Rest Of The Song:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
D   DU  DU DU
