Posted by | Posted in Acoustic Guitars | Posted on 22-10-2011-05-2008


Fantastic tune that utilizes an unusual tuning (in 4ths) it utilizes chords like power chords and barre chords but they are less difficult to play, great for a beginner trying to stretch that bit further into intermediate material.Taught by Justin Sandercoe. Full support at the web site exactly where you will come across hundreds of lessons on a wide range of subjects, and all the scales and chords that you will ever need to have! There is a excellent forum too to get support, no matter what the problem. And it is all totally free of charge, no bull. No sample lessons, no memberships.

Hey I have a question.. In this song, in the F chord and the F@9 chord (or somethin), the 1st finger presses which all strings? Please reply Justin..

thanks for this lesson Justin…… Love the way you taught this…… :)

btw substituting chord names for parts the lyrics was kinda funny/weird xD

Awesome tutorial dude! Thanks! :)

@andrewoldacre thats more of a complement LOL

thanks for helping to make this song a bit easier to play.. cheers :)

love the way you name the chords while youre singing, ‘chasing the F chord’ etc, made me laugh:) thanks for the lesson, keep up the good work!

‘questions of B flat, science and F chord..’ brilliant!

how do you do that very last part that sounds like a bear?

The original tune is not in standard concert pitch! It is slightly higher than the standard A=440 Hz

@miktu That F chord is not a power chord. But it’s not Fadd9 either. Why? In order, the notes being played are F, C, F, G, C, F. That makes up the formula 1-5-9 of the major scale. Since there is no 3rd, this chord is neither major or minor. But the presence of the 9th makes it a sus2.

thanks so much for the lesson! sounds great and plays great!

thats a F power chord, not Fadd9…

I’m too lazy to tune guitar, lol

Thank you so much!!! This is a great tutoria!!!

@johmar5 hahaha .. lol my bad .. i never saw his finger :D .. silly me i thought you were asking the chords

@muxammle well duh.. i know what chord it is. HE points fuck you.

@johmar5 the chord at 6:38 is C/Gsus4 which means 3 fret on low E 3 fret on A 2 fret on D and open GCF strings ..

@muxammle what???

@johmar5 C sus 4 over G means 332000 on that tuning since f is already added in the tuning and g is the root note on which you start the chord


Dude you have the best and MOST accurate chords. i love u. no capo ;D
