Overview
Here's a great beginner song, “Hey Soul Sister” by Train. I go through the song 3 times, once using no capo, the second with a capo on the 4th fret, the third with a capo on the 9th fret. The capo can help get used to seeing the same chords over the entire fretboard as I discuss in my “Capo Thinkage” video (please refer to that video for a more extensive explanation of utilizing our Capo).

Rhythm:
B d u d u B d u d u
1 2 (3) + 4 + 1 2 (3) + 4 +

For two chords in the Chorus:

Rhythm:
B d u B d u
1 2 + 3 4 +

Open Verse:
E – B – C#m – A

Open Chorus:
A – B – E-B

Capo 4 Verse:
C – G – Am – F

Capo 4 Chorus:
F – G – C-G

Capo 9 Verse:
G – D – Em – C

Capo 9 Chorus:
C – D – G-D

Thank you!
