My aim was to make this guitar tutorial as comprehensive and easy as possible.

On the left-hand side of the video, you have a close-up of my right-hand while on the right-hand side you have a close up of my left hand. At the bottom, you have the guitar tabs and chords.

“What’s My Age Again” Guitar Chorus:

No more arpeggios in the chorus. Only power chords. The power chords are very easy to play and used in most styles of music. Are called also fifth chords because they’re made from the root note and the fifth(and octave which is the root).

“What’s My Age Again” Guitar Verse 2:

In the second verse, we aren’t playing arpeggios like in the first but we play again power chords in palm muting. To achieve the palm muting you simply need to play laying the palm of your hand on the guitar. The palm muting technique is more effective when a distortion pedal or distortion channel of an amplifier are engaged.

[Verse 1]

B            F#
  I took her out
C#         D#m
  it was a Friday night
B          F#
  I wore cologne
C#           D#m
  to get the feeling right
B            F#
  We started making out
C#             D#m
  and she took off my pants
B            F#             C#
  But then I turned on the TV

[Chorus 1]

    B
And that's about the
                 F#
time she walked away from
C# D#m        B
me     Nobody likes you
            F#     C#
when you're twenty-three
D#m             B
  And are still more
          F# C#
amused by TV shows
D#m              B

  Then later on
C#       D#m
  on the drive home
B              F#
  I called her mom
C#       D#m
  from a pay phone
B          F#
  I said I was the cops
C#            D#m
  And your husband's in jail
B
 This state looks
F#          C#
down on sodomy

[Chorus 2]

    B
And that's about the time
                F#    C#
that bitch hung up on me
D#m      B
  Nobody likes you when
       F#     C#
you're twenty-three

  And are still more amused
   F#          C#
by prank phone calls
D#m              B
What the hell is caller ID?

My friends say I

[Chorus 4]

    C#
And that's about the
               F#
time she broke up with
C# D#m              B
me    No one should take
              F#     C#
themselves so seriously

  With many years
         F#
ahead to fall in
C#   D#m
line Why would you
     B
wish that on me?
