Firstly remember that in the verse, anytime you see the E minor chord, you should be playing the riff we learnt in the last lesson. To get the rest of the verse we need to learn a new chord - Em7/B. It sounds scary, but the shape is actually quite simple! The website has diagrams of the new chord shape alongside the other chords in the verse.
The intro and verse riff is the first thing we'll tackle. The riff is essentially an E minor chord that you take off and then put back on. In terms of rhythm pattern it is shown in full on the website. The website also has a is a link to the full chord chart / tab of the song. You only need to look at the intro riff for the time being as that's all we've covered so far. Take advantage of the slow down and looper features to make sure you get this part correct.
This song will push your skills to the limit! It consists of the new strumming patterns, new chords, various different parts and even a cool riff. Please sit and enjoy the video all the way through so you're prepared for the next lesson. Try not to get too swept away by those amazing vocals and focus on the guitar part you'll be learning!
Until now we have only been doing a one bar rhythm pattern, and generally we have stuck to the universal pattern, so you should know it very well at this point! Now, we will take things further by learning three harder patterns that are two bars long.
