you have to make the changes with this one - and use arpeggios - not an easy one if ur a beginner, sorry...

If you can use notes from the arpeggios of each chord...

you can kinda get away with d min pentatonic, but not really...

C major blues seems to work pretty well for me... I think it's what EC uses on the Unplugged version.

Questions...
I am trying to work out the ending to this song. The D7 goes somewhere? before returning to the D7, G ending. Can't quite work this out, maybe F or maybe Fdim. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I have a question about the ending also. At the end, the line "nobody knows you" is repeated a few times before closing out the song, and at that point the progression changes. Can anyone clue me in on what chords it goes to? Thank you so much....

I can play this (very slowly).  My problem is common but this song brought it back to light.

I was "transcribing" the song from Justin's video....I know its not really transcribing when someone tells you how to play it :P...but anyways....I always have a hard time figuring where the bar starts and end.  I know how the timing by "feel" but writing that down is a b*tch for me.

I've come to the conclusion that "common" picking pattern Justing uses is for 2 beats (1/2 a bar).  In other words - generally 2 chords per bar throughout the song. Can this be confirmed for me?

This being said - the bass walk from Dm to Little F ends with obviously a F note on the D string, and that note ties into the following bar?  Is my statement clear?  And - it is correct?

Thanks for any help.

Can I clear something up re soloing please?

The song is in C major... so I presume you can use either Minor Pentatonic Blues scale box 1 with its root on the 6th string @ the 8th fret and/or  C major pentatonic (same pattern) which starts on the 5th fret 6th string (root still being on the 8th fret)????

Or am I way off?

Re: Finishing this song off a la unplugged version...It's not exactly right but sort of works as a simple version.

I do it like this. Hold on the final D7 for 2 bars (a C7 shape played 2 frets higher) and then slide the whole shape up by four frets to I think what must be an F7 for 2 bars, then come back down to the D7 for a two bars and resolve on the C.
Hope this helps someone.

I have probably a dumb question considering the quality of the questions here, but humor me.

Does it really make a difference if we fret the A7 bar chord with the pointer finger in the video?

Seems like using middle to bar makes more sense?

@ Twilight Storm

There are no dumb questions.
But you should definitely bar with your index (pointer) finger and not your middle finger.
That is a really bad habit of no benefit whatever and many drawbacks further down the line.

Thank you. I didn't want to practice in something if it was wrong. :)
