Form of the Song

"Best Day" is
Taylor Swift's coming-of-age tune appearing towards the end of Fearless, her 2008 sophomore album from 2008. The country-pop singer sings about her best days growing from childhood towards adolescence, looking back retrospectively at her poignant moments of life to the tune of a slowly playing guitar.
The song was not released as a single, but it was, however, part of 2008's most held-high record in terms of critic reviews, sales figures and Grammys won.

The song requires a capo on the first fret to raise the guitar pitch, and the intro uses a slow picking intro before reaching its strumming pattern for the verse. The five chords of the song are all basic and are grouped into a simple strumming pattern. Upon reaching the C/B chord, the pattern changes briefly for a few short notes. Follow along to learn the song's form and style.

"Best Day" uses the following song form:

* Intro
* Verse 1
* Chorus
* Interlude
* Verse 2
* Chorus
* Bridge
* Verse 3
* Chorus
