What are the Guitar Chords for Eenie Meenie?
Question by Stella
I am currently trying to learn the song Eenie Meenie by Justin Bieber but having trouble learning the chords.
Could someone please clarify to me the chords.
The website I want to learn the song off is http://www.guitartutee.com/j/justin-bieber/justin-bieber-feat-sean-kingston-eenie-meenie-acoustic/.
The chords written on the website are:
G#sus9 – 4x44xx
E/Gsus9 – 0x44xx
Bsus9 – x244xx
F#sus9 – 2x44xx
However, I think they are incomplete. Could someone give me the fingering for the full chords and also tell me which chords to play in the intro. I am really looking forward to performing this song.
Chord Ideas for Eenie Meenie
Hey Stella, if you're going to be playing a solo acoustic rendition of this song, then yes you might want to fill out those chords a bit more.
The video you linked to shows you how to get the chords close to what the keys are playing on the original, but try these chords instead...
First, you'll need a capo on the 1st fret
. If you don't have a capo, you can just play without one but the whole song will be a semitone flat from the original (not that big a deal really).
^ Am7 shape (actually A#m7 now because of the capo)
^ Let the G string ring out open for this F#sus2 chord.
^ Basic open C major shape (C#maj in this case)
^ Gsus4 shape, G#sus4 with capo.
The chorus uses exactly the same chords.
To give the song some sense of dynamics, try plucking the intro/verse and then strum the chorus.
Good luck with the performance! If you need more help with this song, just use the comments link below.
