Same here but great to see the lesson has been put together. Will now wait to watch this, rather than lash it up as I have been doing recently  >:(

Hi there. I'm a total beginner at this. I've been following Justin's beginners course for a couple of months now. Really enjoying it. I just received my copy of the Beginner's Songbook. This is probably a very basic question, but I'm having a little trouble figuring out the chord changes in the book. I tried Walk of Life and the Intro, verse 1 and pre chorus are all pretty straightforward. When I get to Chorus 1,  I'm lost as to what's going on. The barlines seem to start in a strange place (3 words in) and I'm not sure how many strums of each chord.
Would really appreciate some feedback.

Thanks Malcolm

Just to pay back for Justin and the community; I've made this little Tab to help beginners, like me, practicing the song. The song is transcribed by Justin, I added the chords, number of strums per chord and lyrics in an auto-scrolling format.

Old link: http://output.jsbin.com/jevemo
New link: http://output.jsbin.com/ricuwi/

Use controls at the page's bottom.

I hope you find it useful. I plan to do the same for any song I practice.

Edit:

I added scroll delay option.

Omar,

Where were you 3 years ago !!

That's super cool and should help folk out I'd imagine. Not checked for accuracy but I'm sure you've done that countless times before publishing. Good Vibes for this.

Nice one.
If you are going to do multiple songs I think that a separate self-contained thread would be good.
Let me know via PM.

Better late than never! ;)

I watched the video several times to write down chords sequence; videos are important, this little tab is for practicing purposes only and doesn't replace the actual lesson.

If you find any discrepancy, please feel free to PM me to correct it : )

Thank you so much for your motivation and the good vibes, Toby :)

Nice one.

Thank you, close2u. I'll create more of them depending on my progress. I'll definitely PM, a self-contained thread sounds like a good idea :)

I want to help others the same way you all are helping me.  :)

Assuming Omar plans to do more as he progresses through stages, I guess a BC Stage Song thread (ie 1 -9) would be a good idea.  8)

I’m having the hardest time with the shuffle pattern at the end of the video. I’ve gotten good with the blues shuffle (later on in the beginner’s course) but this one alludes me.
It seems like sometimes Justin is counting 1&2&3&4 and sometimes he’s counting 1234 & I’m not 100% sure if it’s all downstrokes or down and up. Whichever I do doesn’t sound like the video.
Can someone clarify for me?

Thanks,

He is strumming down and up for the shuffle pattern.

The 4th fret note is added on beats 2 and 4 for each chord.

Thanks, that sounds more like it although I am catching an extra string on my way up but I suspect that will improve with practice.

Hi there,

I've watched and trained with BS-104. At the end of the video Justin shows the rock'n roll pattern and mentioned it comes later in the beginners course. I've scanned several videos, but can't find the one where he explains the rock'n roll pattern in detail. Can anyone help me with an URL that points to it?

Thank you in advance

Not really a question, but an observation.

I feel like I have this song down with rock 'n roll pattern, so I patched the Dire Straits track through my amp and played along with the song.  It was so much fun!  I got this big, goofy, ear-to-ear smile and just got lost in the music.  Thanks to Justin and the JustinGuitar technical team for making this moment of joy possible!

Hi Currymonster,
I would  play 2  strums of D then two strums of A (4 beats per bar)
Hope that make sense
Dave

Chord charts are not music notation.
They don't tell you what to do, they tell you what chords to play
You use your ears to learn the stumming patterns and to get the fee, of the music.
As beginner just follow Justin. He is starting you off slowly to help you learn. You
wan't playing song as they are on the record for a long time.

The song book does not contain that information. It may contain snippets of suggested patterns, but very rarely a complete strumming pattern.

There's a couple reason I can think of for why.
It keeps things simple. You get the chords, and the lyrics. If you were to add in complete strumming patterns, you'd need more pages per song, so you'd either end up with an even thicker book, or less songs.

The other reason, is it allows you to strum in a way that suits your skill level, without implying you need to be able to do complex patterns in order to play the song. As a beginner, you might only manage a single strum per bar, which would at least let you play along with songs. You could then progress to 4 strums per bar (assuming it's a 4 beats per bar song). Then you have the option of using more complex strumming patterns, as your skills develop.
It's one of the reasons the songbooks are so well recommended. They contain songs that you can play at a very basic level, and then gradually incorporate more skills into.

As to how you find out suitable strumming patterns, tutorial videos will give suggestions, or listen to the original song.

Actually tabs don't tell you strumming patterns either. Guitar players use their ears not their eye to learn
songs. This stems from how we learnt song before the internet. It is still the best way to learn.
This is why Justin has a transcribing course. But do the whole beginner course before trying transcibing
by ear.
