Beth starts off this guitar lesson by playing a little of what she will be teaching. Next she says what chords she will be using in the lesson, which are; C, CM7, Am, G, and F. “To play CM7 you simple play C and take off your first finger”, says Beth, “you will also need a Capo for this song as well”. She explains that the song consists of two chord patterns, the Verse chord pattern and the Chorus chord pattern. Beth explains the Verse pattern as follows; C, CM7, Am, and G. She explains the strumming pattern as follows; C-down, down, down, down, up then change to CM7-down, up, down, down, up, then repeat that sequence with Am and G. Beth explains the Chorus as follows; chords are F, C, and G. The strumming is all down strokes and the count is F gets 3 beats, C gets one beat and G gets 4 beats. She demonstrates this as F (1-2-3), C (4), G (1-2-3-4). Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy acoustic guitar lesson at SongTabs.com.
