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 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

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

I notice in the video Justin throws in a shuffle as he plays the chords and goes on to mention this will be shown later
Although I am not at that stage yet nevertheless he has now intrigued  me enough to want to see how this is done.
Could anyone point me in the right place please.  For instance I see him finger a d chord and then stretch over to shuffle another 2 fingers and interested to know what's going on.
Cheers
