American Pie Chords

   
brackets [] indicate that for the chords inside you should strum once per chord
the strumming pattern for this is very simple: up, down, up, down... 8 per chord except in cases of 2 chords in a measure where you strum each 4 times

check the song for the timing for the first and last verses

find the chords elsewhere

Do the first verse, chorus, verses 2-5, with a chorus in between, the last verse, then 2 choruses, the 2nd with the ending
