The next step is that you have to use this song and its chords, not just to learn the song, but to also get better at playing guitar. You do this by practicing chord transitions in groups of 2. So, simply find the first 2 chords in this song which is D and G. Learn how to play the D chord, and learn how to play the G chord.
Next, play the chords back to back, while simultaneously trying to play it faster and faster. Once you get it to a good speed, this is where the metronome will come in.
At that point, all you need to do is to make sure you are playing in time as a musician. So, whatever fast tempo you have set on your metronome when you practice playing the D chord for 4 beats, and then the G chord for 4 beats, make sure that left hand transitions faster and thinks ahead.
It’s one of those things that’s easier said than done, but when you keep things simple and to the point, you’ll find that you make progress much faster.
