@captainamerica To be honest, I still haven't dove into 8th/16th, so I can't be of help here. However, note that there are two hammers-on  - I assume you them about them already - before 1(D) in Amin and the second one before 1(D) in C.

I hope someone experienced can explain and answer your question :)

The key is to follow through the video, step by step as indicated.  Depending on where you are on your learning journey you may spend a week on each step, or a few minutes on each step - beginner and intermediate respectively.

Also doing something like the following, probably with pen and paper, for each step is immensely helpful.  Something about writing it down and having a visual representation - particularly how each step adds on to the previous step - is huge.

As you gain experience with more and more techniques, the need for this kind of detail diminishes.  But I went with the full monty here assuming complete beginnerhood, and as a recommendation of how to approach solving issues like this on your own:

Code: [Select]
@2:57 First step, basic strumming, get this working first:

     Am          Fmaj7         C           G
     D     D     D     D       D     D     D     D
     1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +    1  +  2  +  3  +  4  + 
e|---0-----0-----0-----0----|--0-----0-----3-----3----|
B|---1-----1-----1-----1----|--1-----1-----0-----0----|
G|o--2-----2-----2-----2----|--0-----0-----0-----0---o|
D|o--2-----2-----3-----3----|--2-----2-----0-----0---o|
A|---0-----0-----3-----3----|--3-----3-----x-----x----|
E|--------------------------|--------------3-----3----|

@3:30 Slightly more complex, more like the song - but not quite, strumming.  Get this working next:

     Am          Fmaj7         C           G
     D     D     D  U  D       D     D     D  U  D
     1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +    1  +  2  +  3  +  4  + 
e|---0-----0-----0--0--0----|--0-----0-----3--3--3----|
B|---1-----1-----1--1--1----|--1-----1-----0--0--0----|
G|o--2-----2-----2--2--2----|--0-----0-----0--0--0---o|
D|o--2-----2-----3--3--3----|--2-----2-----0--0--0---o|
A|---0-----0-----3--3--3----|--3-----3-----x--x--x----|
E|--------------------------|--------------3--3--3----|


@4:15  Even closer - all down strums on the eighth notes.  Get this working. 

     Am          Fmaj7         C           G
     D  d  D  d  D  d  D  d    D  d  D  d  D  d  D  d
     1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +    1  +  2  +  3  +  4  + 
e|---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-|--0--0--0--0--3--3--3--3--|
B|---1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1-|--1--1--1--1--0--0--0--0--|
G|o--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2-|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-o|
D|o--2--2--2--2--3--3--3--3-|--2--2--2--2--0--0--0--0-o|
A|---0--0--0--0--3--3--3--3-|--3--3--3--3--x--x--x--x--|
E|--------------------------|--------------3--3--3--3--|


@5:00 Actual pattern on just the Am chord.  Again only after the above intermediate steps are working comfortably:

    Am (throughout)
    D     d     D     d  u  D  u  d     D     d  u
    1  e  +  a  2  e  +  a  3  e  +  a  4  e  +  a

A|--0-----0-----0-----0--0--0--0--0-----0-----0--0--|
E|--------------------------------------------------|


@6:00 Actual pattern with the timing of the chord changes.  The change to the second chord of each bar, the Fmaj7 and G, occurs on the "e" after beat 3.  Again only after the above intermediate steps are working comfortably:

     Am                         Fmaj7
     D     d     D     d  u  D  u  d     D     d  u

A|--3-----3-----3-----3--3--3--x--x-----x-----x--x---|
E|-----------------------------3--3-----3-----3--3---|


@6:45 Same pattern as the 6 minute mark, but adding some palm mutes on the beat, meaning on 1 2 3 4, notated as "D" [capital D rather than lower case d].  Again get this down before moving on.


@7:25 Finally adding the hammer ons:


     Am                         Fmaj7
     D     d     D     d  u  D  u  d     D     d  u

Put it in a code window if any one wants to copy it more easily.  Also listed it in the body of the post for easier viewing.

Times are per Justin's lesson video.

Go slow and do each step or prepare to be frustrated.

@captainamerica the progression is Amin, Fmaj7, C and G (folk G).

Cap'n,

1)  Counting 4/4 time.

     Quarter note (4 per bar):  1  2  3  4  every beat gets one pulse
 
     Eighth note (8 per bar):  1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and --> which I represent as:  1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +
    every beat gets two pulses

     16th note (16 per bar):  1 ee and a  2 ee and a  3 ee and a  4 ee and a --> which I represent as
     1 e  + a  2 e + a  3 e + a  4 e + a  every beat gets 4 pulses.

     In all cases the 1 2 3 4 are in the same "spot" so yes you are stuffing extra strums/pick in between. 

     So quarter notes to eighth notes you add an extra pulse, the "and" between the 4 beats 1 2 3 4.

     Then eighth to sixteenth the 1 2 3 4 and the "ands" are all in the same "spot" and you add an
     extra strum/pick inbetween the beats and the "ands".

     The "magic" in the rhythm of this song is as much in the 16th notes you skip as in the ones that you 
     play.

2)  In the video I watched the chords and the fingerings I have listed are the chords and fingerings
     Justin shows.
     Watch again:  https://www.justinguitar.com/en/BS-404-SaveTonight-EagleEyeCherry.php
     At about 1:25 he states quite clearly "Am, Fmaj7, C, and G."  Then he gives the fingerings as shown.

3)  Likewise to quote,  "...its the up after 3..."  Listen to him count while he plays.  He changes the
     chord on the "e" after 3.  Just watched it again... watch his face/head as he counts and strums - he
     emphasizes the change with his body language.

     Tab is accurate to Justin's video.  Sounds like you tried to jump right to the end.  Try counting along:
     1   and   2   and a 3 ee and   4   and a, D   d   D   d u D u d   D   d u...

     I'll put in the "skipped" strums in parentheses:
     1 (e)  and (a) 2 (e)   and a 3 ee and (a) 4 (e) and a, D (u)  d (u)  D (u)  d u D u d (u) D   d u...


4)  Probably not.  Rewind is your friend.

Shadow

P.S.  All of which is wrong if we are talking about Mr. Jones by Counting Crows   ;)

Great worth here Shadow, but no more full tabs like this or I might get in trouble!! I'll leave this one here but especially because I work with publishers for my books, I have to be careful not to take the mickey and allow tabs on my site or forum or I might start finding it harder to get licensing!

But great breakdown of how it can be approached! :) merry xmas!

 :(  Sorry about that!  If it needs to come down, tear down the wall.

Maybe just the final step?  Before that it could be considered a progression and a strumming pattern.

Apologies again.  My bad.  Getting you and yours in trouble is the last thing I want!

I have a question about the strumming.  I've got the pattern down, and I'm palm muting off and on -- and it's not bad if I go slow, but the faster I get, the more my pick gets caught up in the strings and it's not smooth.  Any advice?

Patience  :)

Keep practising it and picking up the tempo to the point where you are still in control.  And over time the tempo at that point will pick up.

I'd go as strong as to say don't play it at a tempo where it breaks down.  When you reach that point immediately back down to get back into control.  Practising what is not working will just strengthen poor technique.

Don't believe there are any shortcuts  ;)

Play it using a metronome at a tempo you can get it right and gradually build up to tempo, it will take a time so patience is important - more haste, less speed!

Yes patience!  I do struggle with that one. You're both right!
And I also think the idea of stopping before you're messing up is good.  I do have a tendency to practice my mistakes.

Thanks guys!

I'm not sure this song fits in the Beginner section... 16th note strumming, a kinda tricky change to F, pushing the change, palm muting.
There's a lot here. But I guess you can start off easy, and add complexity as you go.

Hey guys,

One thing I have a major (no pun intended) problem with is the E string.
I try muting it with my thumb, however I find myself touching the high E string with the palm of my hand sometimes or the string touches my first finger and makes a really terrible sound.
On the other hand, when I try to play with my thumb behind the neck, it's awkwart to mute the E string with my ring finger (I got used to playing C like that, but in case of Fmaj7 it's still hard to pull off for me).

Another thing is that the high E string doesn't really sound good to my ears, even if it's ringing out properly.
I have a feeling like it overpowers the rest of the strings' sound.

Any advice you guys can share from your own experience?
