Stage 8 songs.

Please use this thread for general questions about Stage 8 songs.

As and when video lessons are posted, go to this section for questions on those specific songs.

I'm a bit confused on the strumming patern of Wonderwall. In the book, it looks like the G and Asus come in on a Down strum, but in the video on the website, Justin clearly says it has to be on the upstroke. Which one is correct?

In the book, Justin mentions that the proper strumming can be found in his free online lesson so I'd go with the video lesson.

Hi,

I think you're right, and the book is wrong.

There's an old(er) thread on Wonderwall - it was a lesson before the book came out:

http://justinguitarcommunity.com/index.php?topic=18432.0

There is much discussion about strumming patterns. At the bottom of the first page I posted the strumming pattern that matches the video & was on the bottom of Justin's tab sheets before they had to be removed.

Fast car.
in the first measure, the c chord is played first without the top c (played with an open b instead), and then the c is played as the second note. it feels / sounds better with this c hammered down, rather than trying to put the finger down and then pluck it. do you proper guitarists play it that way? (for us beginners to learn from i mean!).
as ever, a lesson on this one would be awesome justin... good place to intro hammering technique? (is there anywhere else where hammer is intro'd?).
this site / the books are just brilliant - thanks as ever! :-)

Learn "Working class hero" (or maybe "Wish you were here"), you can hammer-on to your heart's content :D

I certainly wouldn't consider myself a proper guitarist, but fwiw: I'd probably play it with the hammer-on, that sounds better to me (and doesn't Justin do that as well once or twice?)

Btw: that open C with the first finger (2nd string) lifted off is a Cmaj7 ;)

Edit: One thing, though. If you play it with a hammer-on, you really need to nail that note down, it's vital to the riff. That's probably the reason why Justin goes for the picked note here (wild guess on my part).

Justin already has a video lesson for fast car (but will probably shoot a new version eventually so the songbook videos all match)

Oohps, thought that was what jcb was talking about. Only watched the bit with Justin playing the song just now, maybe he talks about the hammer-on on there?

hadn't realised about the video already there, thanks tourniquet. looks like he's plucking it there i think....? will look forward to the new lesson when it comes!
@jacksroadhouse. wish you were here. am all over it, thanks :-) you could kinda say it's the reason i took up the guitar! that and 'nobody home' - another one that would be great for a justin lesson at some stage!

Hi. ive been looking at the video over and over again for hours and just dont understand where the strumming pattern DU DU DD fits into the 1+2+3+4+ pattern in the song  book.
8 minutes into the video it is slowed down but im still scratching my head.
i think it starts as (1D) + 2 (+U) (3D) (+U) (4D) (+D)

Please help :o

Rhythm for chorus:
1 e & a 2 e & a 3 e & a 4 e & a
X x x x X x x x X x x x X x x x
D _ _ U _ _ D _ _ U D _ D

Hand moves continuously, just plays where the D and U are written!
...where the deer and the antelope play.  Well, they're not really playing.  They're fleeing in terror.

Hey!

The song Vincent seems like its played with fingers rather than chords. I cant seem to make it work in the book.
