Thank you for your help!! it was for soprano ukulele if that helpsHow to play SONGS on the guitar ?
So i recently got a guitar, so this might seem like a really stupid question. I learned how to play a lot of chords and wanted to learn how to play some songs. For example, Hey Soul Sister by Train. I watched a video on you tube and the guy say to play a D chord. Then he played the song and when he got to the D chord he just strummed all the way up and all the way down. I thought when you play a D chord you don't strum the top two strings i am very confused.
