Today I’m going teach to you Riptide guitar chords as well as the easiest method to play the song with your guitar.

Riptide composed by Australian artist Vance Joy, has become an immense success. Ukulele as well as guitar players are awestruck by the track.

It’s a catchy, simple tune. I’m going to demonstrate how you can play the tune on your guitar using three simple chords.
