Guitar-Clean-eadgbe

This is probably one of my fav Who songs. It just basic chords that you learn when first 
the guitar on clean guitar along with like two barre chords. Its a very easy song

I should also mention, that if you listen carefully it sounds like theres some picking in the background. Its the same chords, just being picked, you should strum the chord and pick or have 1 guitar strum and the other pick.
