Hi!

Thanks for such a great song! You didn't tell one thing in that video - how can anyone keep pressing the same strings throughout the whole tune without cutting them in halves?! (I mean 3rd and 4th fingers) :D
And the strumming in the rest of the song isn't as simple as I hoped it would be, but I guess it just takes some time and effort to figure it out completely :)
BTW on the youtube there's a great acoustic version of this song, played by some no-name band, but worth seeing anyway :)

That's my first post on this forum, so hello to everyone! :) I hope that I didn't make too many errors, my English is still not as it should be ;) But I'm working on it ;)

Cordan-

It's going to be tough to keep those strings pressed down at first, but after you've practiced it a while your fingers will toughen up and it will get easier.

The strumming pattern is basically based around that intro pattern, so once you get the song down a little better try strumming along with the record and you'll pick up some little variations that he does.

Ok, I'm one of those people who deviate from the lesson and look at everything the internet has to offer on the subject (though this is my main place).

Is A7sus4 properly

EADGBe

x02233 (as it appears in the video)

or
x02033 (as I seem to be seeing it all over the place)

I'm banking on Justin is doing it right but you never know, maybe it only looks like he's holding down a string, or maybe both versions are right and I just don't understand music theory, or maybe it's a common mistake for this song, or maybe I'm missing something like that but completely different, so I just wanted to ask.

they're both technically correct as they both have a flat 7th note added

I think Justin is playing the 1st one

I play the 2nd one but don't know for certain if it's an exact match for the record

So x02033 is A7sus4 flat?

No you got it wrong. A dominant 7th chord has the flattened 7th and so does a min7 chord(but includes the flattened third). A maj7 chord has the normal 7th(a g# in the key of a).

Thinking without capo ... to make it easier ...

x02233  ... notes played = A, E, A, D, G

x02033   ... notes played = A, E, G, D, G

same notes, same chord

 ;DHi. Great song but I have an alternative if you don't have a capo (a.k.a me!). It starts of like:
Am C G D for the verse
F G Am Am for the bridge
F Am C Am for the chorus. It works, I've tried! Cheers 8). NeckRuler

Forgot to mention that there is a change during the bridge that goes

F                     G               C                         Am                      D   
There are many things that I would like to say to u but I don't know how.

   ;D Hope thats OK.

I hate to ask this but I've been struggling with this for a while & I really want to have this song nailed before I go back to work in another week.

Anywho... I have the strumming down for the intro, verses & I think I have it right for the first part of the chorus right up to where it goes G D/F# Em7 Asus4. After that  I'm a little stumped.
So if anyone can help me out with Cadd9 Em7 G Em7 sequence I'd really appreciate.

Cheers, Matt.

(& a Happy New Year :) )

Hi,
First of all, I wanted to say thanks for everything you are doing here.
I'm really new at this and your site helps me a lot. Especially with this song - I've seen many lessons on Youtube, but yours is definitely the best. The parts you explained I can do perfectly,
I just have a problem with the strumming variations you didn't show how to play.
If you could please just right down the right way to play it (like you did with the usual strumming), I'm sure I will manage.

Thanks again
and have a great year

Most of the song is like this:

What I have (from the bottom of Justin's "tab" is:

Code: [Select]
Em                  G                 D            A                 
D  (D)   D   D U  D U D    D   D U  D U D    D   D U    U   U  D U D U
X X X X  X X X X  X X X X  X X X X  X X X X  X X X X  X X X X  X X X X

The chord changes happen on the up-strums.

(Note the chord names are abbreviations for Em7, Dsus4 &  A7sus4)

I thought it was:

Emin DDDDUD
G UDDDUD
D UDDD
A UUDUDUDU

Is that not right?

Doesn't look like it's right.
Em7: D-D-D-DU
G: DUD-D-DU
Dsus4: DUD-D-DUD
A7sus4: U-U-UDUDU

If you want the Cadd9 D A7sus4 variation pattern (after verse 1) just ask me.
I might have added too many strums on some chords.

Doesn't Justin recommend always changing on the up? So the first would be a U? Or was that only for the first change?

I think that's correct, but you don't have to do that for the Dsus4-A7sus4 change, because you'll only be adding your index finger on the 4th string.

I use basically the same strumming pattern as the one used in the verse.  I'm not certain that's exactly how it is played on the record, but it sounds fairly close, and in any event it sounds cool.

Well, this is how I play it and it sounds nice, although it's probably not exactly like the record, it's an easy strum pattern. The lower-case letters means a stroke which mostly hits the bass strings, from E to G; and lower-case letters and italic means a stroke that mostly hits the treble strings, from D to e.

The verse would be like:

(Em7) ddD (G) UDUdD (Dsus4) ududd (A7sus4) UUU DU (A7sus4") DU


The first ending line of the verse will be:

(Cadd9) ddD (Dsus4) ududd (A7sus4) UDUdD UUU DU (A7sus4") DU


You'll be playing that only once in the whole song, the rest of the ending lines will all be played like the verse. The bridge will go like this:

(Cadd9) UddD (Dsus4) ududd (Em7) UddD UDUdD

(Cadd9) UddD (Dsus4) ududd (Em7) UddD UDUdD

(Cadd9) UddD (Dsus4) ududd (G) Udd (Dsus4/F#) D (Em7) UDUd (G) D

(A7sus4) UddD UDUdD UddD UDUdD


And the chorus:

(Cadd9) UddD (Em7) UDUdD (G) UddD (Em7) UDUdD

(Cadd9) UddD (Em7) UDUdD (G) UddD (Em7) U


After that last upstroke on the Em7, hold it and let it ring for a while then start again beginning with:

(A7sus4) UUU DU (A7sus4") DU


Just repeat everything one more time but without playing that alternative ending line from the first verse because it is played only once. The trick to the A7sus4 on the verse is to play it like xx2233 and before the last two strokes you quickly change to A7sus4 = xx2033, meaning you just release the third string by lifting you finger before the last two strokes...

I'm not sure there is a strict pattern, when I learned this song a few months ago I just kept the same strumming pattern as the Em7-G-Dsus4-A7sus4 part. Just mix it up and listen if it sounds good. It's probably not exactly like the record, but who would know the difference other than you? It's all about the vibe. :)

It's D-D-DUDU-U-UD-D-DUD-D-DU-UD-D- or something like that. I love this variation.
