This is the famous folk song called "Cotton Eyed Joe".
I have prepared this easy version for beginners with two variations of the theme. You will play solo and guitar accompaniment with chords.
The accompaniment is playing only four chords: G, C, D.
As you can see in the video, for the chords I put the palm of my right hand on all the strings.
This allows me to get a full power sound for the accompaniment.
Perform the song very slowly at first, then gradually increase the speed until you master the technique.
