Hi Justin, and others

I'm loving this song and lesson, but I'm having a bit of trouble with the triplet strumming, is their a lesson available on it anywhere? I have RUST 1 if it's on their somewhere.

Thanks a lot & keep up the good work

Danny

@Danny,  The triplets are in the beginner's course here:  http://www.justinguitar.com/en/BC-155-Triplets.php  Does that help?

@mickk, You're right! Key of A.  The B is a secondary dominate.  It's the dominate of the E.  The B wants to resolve to the E and the resolves to the A.  Wiki it.

Cheers for that! The thing is the more I learn about music theory the more I wish I'd never started!

Justin gives the chords in the video.  You just have to write them down.   :D

Hi

I get lost in the last part of the intro, when you say we can use E7. The problem is I don't understand what strings I have to strum. The previous part isn't difficult, even for my beginner level.

Thanks.

Same strings you'd strum for an E.

What I mean is that it seems that Justin doesn't play the chord itself but something like an arpegio.
