Hey all! Today we’re going a bit more intermediate and doing a fingerstyle tune with some tougher shapes and a bit of strumming to top it all off.
If you’re interested in fingerstyle, I have an upcoming course, you can sign up here to be notified when it’s ready: https://goodguitarist.com/learn-fingerstyle
I also have some other resources you might be interested in.
The lesson begins with the verse. We use 6 stretchy chord shapes and a fairly basic fingerpicking pattern. I walk you through it, bit-by-bit, and then we put it together.
Next up is the chorus, which requires some new shapes and a strumming pattern. The A/C# is the only tricky one here.
Following that, we work on some of the differences. The 2nd verse is a little different than the 1st verse, and the 2nd chorus is a little different than the first.
And that leads us in to the bridge, which is like a song unto itself. New key, new shapes, same pattern. We work through it and that lands us in the final chorus, which, once again, as a couple different things in it. We go over all that and then play through a big chunk of the tune.
I hope you enjoyed the lesson and I’ll see you soon!
