On this lesson of Songs Made Easy, we're teaching you how to play "Rude" by the Canadian band, Magic!. It was the debut single from their first studio album entitled "Don't Kill the Magic", and the tune reached the top of the charts around the world.

While the original song is in the key of Db, Aldrine teaches you how to play it in the key of A. "Rude" uses 4 different chords in two fairly simple chord patterns. Aldrine also shows you how to efficiently switch from chord to chord.
