Put your capo on the 4th fret to play in the same key as the videos in GCEA tuning!

I've simplified a couple of things such as the line "Hidin'... somewhere in the night". For the last bar of the line you'll see 1 downstroke on G and 2 quick downstrokes on F. But it's actually 1 downstroke on G, then 1 quick downstroke on a C and 1 quick downstroke on the F. Your choice.

"Don't Stop Believin'" became a number 9 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 on its original release. In the United Kingdom, the song was not a Top 40 hit on its original release; however, it did reach number 6 on a 2009 re-release, having gained increased popularity through its use on television.

Mike DeGagne of AllMusic has described "Don't Stop Believin'" as a "perfect rock song" and an "anthem", featuring "one of the best opening keyboard riffs in rock." It is one of the top-selling catalog tracks in digital history.
