Song Lessons – CRAZY by Patsy Cline (open chords / capo 3)

Song Lessons – CRAZY by Patsy Cline (open chords / capo 3)

Crazy by Patsy Cline is an absolutely beautiful song.  Today I will do my very best to have you singing your heart out by the end of this lesson.

In order that we can play the song in the same key as the recording I’ve used the capo on Fret number 3 and we’re using open chords for the entire song.

I’ve broken the song down into three parts:

Let’s Talk About Guitar Practice

Let’s Talk About Guitar Practice

I had with a guitar student recently who was struggling with what to do next and they asked me what I would do, how I practice… so that’s one thing. The second thing is I’ve got another blog bubbling for the near future about common questions that are asked by guitar students. Common situations we have. One of  those is practice and practice routines so I’m really interested in what YOUR thoughts are and what YOUR experiences are because we can all learn from each other by sharing this.

Do you have any thoughts on practice?  what you’ve experienced? what does that word means to you? (because it can scare some people, some people thrive on it),  what are your experiences? have you progressed? did you hit any plateaus? how do you feel about it?

Song Lessons – FAITH by George Michael (Open chords/capo 4)

Song Lessons – FAITH by George Michael (Open chords/capo 4)

Learn how to play Faith by George Michael in this guitar tutorial. I have used open chords to simplify it a bit and also added the capo to fret 4. This puts us in the same key as the recording. The song is one of many that uses the famous Bo Diddley Beat as its rhythm. This rhythm runs the entire way through the song. The first part of the lesson concentrates on teaching this rhythm. The Bo Diddley Beat is a rhythm that uses a combination of strums and mutes in a particular accent. If you all you learn from this lesson is to play this you have learned something extremely valuable.

Song Lesson – JOLENE by Dolly Parton (Acoustic chord strumming)

In this acoustic guitar strumming tutorial we learn Dolly Partons iconic song JOLENE.

This is a STRUMMING guitar lesson so we are focussing on two different rhythms that will represent this song best as an acoustic guitar arrangement that you can sing along to.

The Capo is on fret 4 and we only have 3 open chords to contend with in Am C & G.  If you don’t have capo you can practise just using the chords in the open position.

Song Lesson – Lilac Wine by Jeff Buckley (chords & video lesson link)

When I first heard Jeff Buckley’s version of Lilac Wine on the Grace album it was a moment I’ll never forget. Sparse, haunting, visceral, stunning melody, very humble guitar creating an atmosphere, not at all overplayed. Truly captivating. A story beautifully told…

Today will be a journey through the chords of this song.  It’s perfect in its simplicity to play and sing along to if you fancy a go at some tasty chords.
