Animated Born in the USA tab by Bruce Springsteen on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is a great song for new beginners to learn. It only has 3 main riffs and each is easy to learn!

Riff 1 - Riff 2

Riffs 1 and 2 are played together in the track, however, we simply swap between the two to show you both parts. Up to you which to play. They are both similar - Riff 2 is the same as Riff 1, except it is played 1 octave higher.

Riff 3 is the main song chord sequence. It's all powerchords (nice and easy), and not that many of them. So this should be easier to pick up than most songs. The chord sequence is just 2 chords:

B5 - E5

Use all downstrokes and strum each chord 32 times. Alternate between them ad infinitum. Incidentally, Riffs 1 and 2 are continuously played along with this guitar part too, so you can switch to either of those if your fingers need to do something else for a while!
