How do these patterns fit into 'Dont Think Twice'? I've been trying to fit them but the timing never works.

Hi, I came here to ask pretty much the same question as you, rohangeorge, but I see no one has answered as yet :(

At the end of this lesson, Justin suggests we fit the patterns into Dylan's "don't think twice, it's all right". I am having some trouble as well. Specifically, the last two lines of each verse. So in the first verse it would be "(C) you're the (G) reason I'm (Am) travellin' (F) on / (C) but don't think (G) twice, it's (C) all right (G)"

I am having a pretty hard time fitting in the finger pattern in the whole song but here it seems as though each chord is only played for half a bar/two beats? If you change chords in the middle of a bar, how do you do the finger pattern?

Hmmm, I would count it

|C / / / | G / / / | Am / / / | Am / / / | F / / / | F / / / | C / / / | G / / / |....

Correct. They are full bars played quite fast.

Ok, I didn't realize they were full bars, thanks guys! I am playing it so slowly it makes things sound off I think. I think I am starting to get it though. Funny how this song is so much harder for me to sing and fingerpick at the same time than another song I practiced first (the bluegrass "I'll fly away"). maybe the words come more on the beat with that one? But I think how fast Dylan sings it has been making it more of a challenge for me.

I found it easier to sing 'in my head' while playing (and the neighbours were relieved)

Lol! Well I didn't think the neighbors could hear, I am in an apartment but I am not using a mic or anything!

I suddenly feel I’m making progress here!

As Justin suggests at the end of the lesson in the IM course book, I’m trying my hand at Bob Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice I’m Alright. Don’t get me wrong, I’m slow, make mistakes all over the place, but I can see where I’m going.

Fingerstyle/picking is so difficult but so much fun!
