While some of my website visitors and blog readers may be surprised to see posts of Katy Perry songs at www.guitarsongs.info, not exactly being guitar-based songs, "Teenage Dream" is actually the third song by Katheryn Elizabeth Brand ( aka Katy Perry ), having previously posted "Hot'n'Cold" and "I kissed a girl" to my Pop songs guitar chords page.
But... they are good fun pop songs, they can be played on guitar, and I like to include as many songs by female vocalists as I can.
No denying Ms. Perry's popularity either, the album of the same name debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard 200, as well as reaching #1 in Ireland and New Zealand. The single did likewise, as well as topping the charts in the UK, Australia and Canada
I've worked out my version of the song, and added it to my Pop Songs Guitar Chords page at the Guitarsongs.Info link below.
In the video below, the song is played in the key of DMaj7 ( D Major Seventh ), with chords DMaj7, F#m E, which can be a bit tricky if you're a beginner. I have transposed it down two semitones to CMaj7, so that it can be played with just chords: CMaj7, D and Em - you'll have to listen to the song to get the strumming pattern. I've indicated that you should put your capo on the second fret if you want to play along with the original.
