Before tackling this course, you should be comfortable with all the material from Solo

This easy going pop tune is great for beginner guitar players who want to practice and learn their open chords, and even try a new way of play the dreaded F major chord! Simone walks you through all the chords and rhythm you need!

The Chords: 4 chord loop

The 4 chords we are using are G major, A minor, C major and F major. We are using a capo on the 6th fret, as you can see in the picture below. Remember, the F is not played with a barre chord in this case (thankfully!).

Rhythm: Pop groove

The main rhythm pattern relies on you changing the chords at a very specific point. Follow the pattern below and be sure to play the G major on beat number 1 in the first bar, then play A minor on beat '4+'. Then on the '2+' of the next bar you change to the C major. You then play the F major for the whole strumming pattern the next time round, starting from the 1. In the verse (rather than chorus), you do exactly the same, you just don't play the C major.

    Keep Learning: Strumming

    Many thanks for watching this video and visiting the website. If you want to really perfect your strumming skills, you may want to try our beginners acoustic guitar course where we look into strumming and the basics of strumming patterns. This is so important if you are to play more complicated strumming like in this video lesson. You can find it here: Beginners Acoustic Guitar Course. Give it a try!
