This song is so catchy, I can't get it out of my head! Thanks for this lesson Nick. It is also very useful for those just starting on the guitar and practicing chords as the song can be played with only C and G7 chords.

This is the popular children's song "Wheels on the Bus".
I have prepared this easy version for beginners and a second part played pretty fast.
You will play solo and bass-chord accompaniment.
The accompaniment is playing only two chords: C and G7.
As you can see in the video, for the accompaniment I used the thumb finger and palm muting for the alternating bass, the others fingers for the chords. This allows me to get a beautiful full sound.
