This Bowie classic has been covered by many bands. Mott the Hoople recorded one of the most famous versions, Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden also did a good version on his solo Album Tatooed Millionaire. It's a great song, and involves 2 guitars, acoustic and electric. Here we look at the acoustic rhythm guitar.

Just strum through these chords for the Intro / Verses:

D Major - B minor - D Major (A in Bass) - F# minor - A Major (alternate to A sus4 a couple of times by just moving your 3rd finger as shown).

Pre-Chorus:

E minor - F# Major - B minor / A in Bass - G Major - D Major alternate with D sus4 a couple of times by adding and removing your 4th finger - A Major / A sus4 - A Major

Chorus:

D Major - B minor - D Major - D Major - A minor - F Major - C Major - G Major - C Major - A Major - D Major - Notice that the last chords are short.

Just repeat these sections and that's the whole song!
