“Drive” by REM

  • by

Difficulty: Easy – Intermediate

Here are all the chords used :

Dm G
F

Am
Em C

The song is performed at 72 bpm (beats per minute).

There are some tricks to this song. Notice at the VERY beginning
of the verse, you are asked to play a D. That is NOT a D chord.
That is saying that you need to play the fourth string (the D
string) open. You will just simply play that string only. This
happens quite a bit in this song, so be prepared. If there is
a number beside the circled number, that tells you what fret to
play it on. Like in the F#, you will play the sixth string (Low
E) on the second fret.

I didn’t go back to Verse 2 for this part, because it is the
same as Verse 1. What you see is what I played.

After the bar above, you should go back to the Verse Theme again.
Then, you will go BACK to the part below :

Bridge/Outro

This was played through as you see it.
