In this Uptown Girl guitar chords lesson, I will show you how to play this great song from Billy Joel on the acoustic guitar.
The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.
"Uptown Girl" is not only a great song, but it works really well on the guitar to! The main chord progression is in E, which is perfectly suited for the guitar.
Since this is an arrangement of a piano based song, you are going to see a lot of barre chords being used, so make sure you have those nailed before attempting this lesson.
"Uptown Girl" is a great study in how to create interesting chord progressions. Billy Joel seamlessly connects different tonal areas with ease and puts it all together with a great melody.
I hope you guys enjoy learning this 80's classic! Carl...
