This week we’re gonna show you how to play “Song For Zula” by Phosphorescent. It’s pretty straight-forward, some chords (E, B, A, C#m) and a strumming pattern.
What makes this song good for learning guitar is the fact that the same 4 chords are repeated over and over (with 1 very tiny exception during the instrumental parts). This makes it great for learning to play with a metronome as you won’t have to focus so much on the chords and can concentrate on your strumming a bit more.
I also took a moment to show you how you can use a capo (on the 4th fret) and play this song with different shapes (instead of barre chords!). In that case, the chords are C, G, Am, Fmaj7 – they are all open chords and all quite simple.
I hope you enjoy this lesson and if you have any questions or requests please let me know in the comments below!
