Hi Folks,

This is my first question since joining so hi to you all.

I have a question please.

I am completing the beginners course BC119 page 50 where Justin encourages you to test your chord progressions with a song from the beginners songbook, which I have started to do.

I chose Walk of life by Dire Straits, and I guess in a way by doing this I have kind of jumped the gun a little, but was determined I wouldn't do this, but as Justin recommended trying a tune from a songbook to practice....this is how I broke my rule. Normally I would go through each book from the start rather than flitting from one book to another.

My question is Page 14 of the beginners songbook Walk of Life. Intro shows;

A D E then D E closer together

I watched the video Justin did on this and noticed for the D &E close together that he only strummed twice for each of the 2 chords, Would I be right in assuming the spacing being half the distance means its just 2 counts instead of 4 and hence the 2 strums?

Sorry for such a basic question.

Your help greatly appreciated

Thanks
