If your playing on acoustic, there is another perhaps easier way to play the GAGA, which is exhausting if your trying to play regular chords or even barre them. Since you can play bottom 4 strings only (D,G,B,E) and get the same chord sound, you can rock back and forth between a "regular" 3 finger A chord and your ring finger on the high e. This will give you a hard GAGA with much less effort.

I beleive what he says at the end of the song is "See Saw Marjorie Daw" - not something about a dog.
