Rockstar (Acoustic)

Animated Rockstar (Acoustic) tab by Nickelback on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

In the song, the acoustic guitar continues throughout, the electric only comes in during the choruses (which we looked at in the previous ActionTab).

The electric guitar plays through a powerchord sequence during the chorus. There is also some lead guitar (which we'll look at in the next ActionTab). During the choruses, the acoustic guitar is slightly different to the electric.

Instead of just playing through powerchords, the acoustic plays fuller chords. Also the strumming is sometimes just a little different. There's not a massive difference, and if you can already play the previous acoustic / electric parts then this will come very easily.

So, the acoustic guitar is the same as before for the intro/verse and bridge parts:

Intro / Verses: G maj - C maj - F maj - G maj (repeat)

Bridge: Bbsus2 - C maj

However, this time the chorus is:

Choruses: G maj - Bb major - C major - Eb major - F major (repeat)

Notice that for the last F major chord, you move your fingers down to play the full chord at fret 1, whereas the electric plays up to fret 8 instead.
