Hey, there YouTubers, your guitar sage here. Today, we’re going to learn how to play “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrison and I’ve got my chart up on my screen here and I’m just going to start playing it and I won’t play the entire solo with through just because there’s a lot of repeat. So we only got a few minutes before we continue but I will play and explain all the parts near the end of this video.
So for those of you, you can just watch and get what I’m doing and awesome. For those of you who can’t stick around then we’ll talk about the particulars. And I’ll play that beginning lick. I’ll play that in a minute. Let’s start off with the chords when you start singing. It’s going to go something like this and I forget the lyrics of this because I’m teaching so many songs and I don’t know the lyrics for the vocal lesson to this I guess you can watch them and see some lyrics, I’m teaching to talk today. Here we go, it’s going to go something like this.
That’s the verse and the chorus is going to go something like this.
That’s the chorus and the break part is going to go.
Then we go to the verse and the chorus again. So really we’re looking at three parts to this tune, the verse, the chorus and the break. Now there are no other parts of this song they just repeat. So, let’s talk about the chords you’re going to need in this tune. We’re also going to talk about the construction for each one of the parts and then we’re also going to talk about the rhythm and the lick in the beginning if we get time.
Any of the techniques that we’re talking about here today if you don’t understand them, check out your guitarsage.com and get the eBook that’s on there and it will really help your understanding and some of the things that I’m talking about. If you do understand everything I'm talking about then great, if you don’t get an eBook and that will really help and accentuate your playing.
Also, you can get of hold of this chart and a bunch of other chart that I’ve got, that I’ve specifically done for these teachings, so here we go. So the chords we’re going to need for this song are G, C and D and I think that is the entire song. Other’s want an E minor during the verses, So you need a G, C, D, E minor and you got this whole thing. You got this for the chords.
Let’s talk about construction here and then we’ll talk about strumming and all that. The songs in four so that means four beats per chord so for instance with the exception at the beginning when you start singing that’s the part we’re talking about so it’s like this, it’s like you can either write these chords down or like I said go to your guitarsage.com and you can see on how to get on the whole of this chart. Let’s go G for four beats, C for four beats, G four for beats, D for four beats. In fact like I say four beats every time. It’s one chord for each measure. I tell you when we need to double up so back to top song. So that was eight chords there. We repeat that whole eight chords twice every time you play a verse. So those eight chords I just told you, repeat it twice then go on to the second section of the verse which is C, D, G, E minor, C, D, G, D.
Now, second verse comes up the same as the last verse, the exact setting. And after the second verse, there is a two bar or two measure section where you just played D and then send to the chorus. The chorus is going to go G, C, G, E and then repeat that again.
Alright the break, they said all the chorus is on the song they’re going to go like that. The break is going to go four measures of G. That’s the break. The third verse is the same as verses one and two and at the end of verse three you also have that extended two bars of D in addition to the actual verse.
Let’s talk about the strumming rhythm and then there’s a chorus out. So, the last thing I think we hear is the chorus on that tune. Looking at my time we’re doing good, let’s talk about the strumming for a minute here, the strumming on this on the strumming that I do that works very nice for this is 1, 2 and,3 and 4. So you can just get that right away those of you that can’t check out on the eBook. I have a whole battery of tests that will help you with your strumming and will really get your right hand to get to the strumming hand really in sink but, for those of you that I understand we’re talking about is 1,2 and, and 4.
You pretty much can use that the whole time so it’s like—
That’s the strumming rhythm for the whole thing. Thank goodness we still have time for this lick part here that we call guitar lick or a musical motif. It’s basically a musical idea that we repeat. So in the beginning of this song we do this here at the 7th fret we’re going to the first finger on this 7th fret at the first string, second finger on the eight fret of the second string and you’re going to go up in intervals like this.
So you do that once and it’s going to go.
Now, you going to take that whole little idea that you just did there, slide it up to the 12th fret and it’s the same exact thing. So down here you got —at the 12th fret you just do the same motif, the same movement. Then to end to lick you’re going to go first finger is on the 7th fret and the 3rd string pinky is on the 10th fret of the second string and so you can hit both this together and then you may go that’s 7,8,10 on the second string.
All right I’m looking at my time guys and we’re out of time. So, hopefully you’ve learned something here today. If you have any more question hit your guitarstage.com and get that eBook and it’s really going to help out. If you haven’t already hit subscribe and keep practicing.
