Hey there little ones, your guitar sage.
Today, we’re going to learn how to play Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen. This is a really fun tune unfortunately, it does have a couple of barred chords. I’m looking at my chart here on my screen and it does have a couple of barred chords but you something? I think it's time we graduate to a couple of barred chords, okay.
You guys have been doing good with your open chords and now we’re going to talk about some bar chords, okay. So first off, I’m going to play it. There’s basically like four different parts to this tune and we’ll cover them. There’s a verse, a chorus, a solo section and then the fade is a little bit different; okay, the fade out.
Okay so, I’m going to jump into it. Of course I will play the whole tune all the way through but I’ll pause on each part at least one time. So the verse one time, I won’t play all the verses and I won’t play all the choruses. Just one of each, okay?
So here we go, I’m going to jump into it right away. I’ll just play the intro, verse, chorus and also the fade and we’ll talk about that in bits and pieces. For those you that are just watching me do it, you’ll get it in about two or three minutes. For those of you that need more help, stick around we’ll probably use the whole 10 minutes just to get this song taken care off, okay.
So here we go. It's something like this
So that was the verse. The chorus is going to go.
Okay, we’ll talk about the little bam-bam-bam. We’ll talk about a little of that in a minute. Okay, that was the chorus other than the—
Okay, we’ll talk about that in a minute.
The solo is going to go—
And we got that
We’ll get a lot of that again. We’ll talk about that in a minute.
The fade out goes—
Okay, it fades out. I believe that’s a fade out, okay.
So here we go. Let’s talk about the chords for each one of these. For this song, you’re going to need a D (demonstration), G (demonstration), C (demonstration), an F (demonstration), a B flat or Major (demonstration), E Major (demonstration) and an A (demonstration). It's quite a few chords.
So, let’s talk about this main lick at the beginning. A lick for a chop or a riff is a little something and a little repetitive thing that we play on the guitar. They called it a lick because back in the times of saxophones that was the major improved instruments horns. There was always lick in there or chops. So, that’s the name lick for chops and it comes from playing. Okay so, here we go with a side note there.
So, the intro is going to go; hold a D chord. We’ll talk about strumming in a minute too, but you’re going to go from a D to it a Dsus or suspended (demonstration), okay. So, it’s all in four (demonstration), okay. That’s the rhythm for this tune for the most part (demonstration), okay. Practice that rhythm slowly with one chord. Don’t just jump in to the song because you’re going to write me and say I can’t get it. You can get it, it's just that it’s going to take time for any guitar player. Learning just takes time and energy, and dedication. So, just dedicate yourself to it. Stick to one chord and go (demonstration). A little work unto to that (demonstration), okay.
All right, so the chords for the verse are going to go on two. We’ll stop a little quickly. In any of the techniques that we’re using here if you don’t understand it, go to yourguitarsage.com. I’ve got a great informative ebook there that will help you with all of these stuff in detail in writing, charts and all sorts of good stuff. It will really help out in accentuating your playing. Then of course, it will show how to get to hold to these charts that I’ve charted up. I did it for myself; and my students here but they’re here to help you as well; otherwise, you’re going to have to write all the notes down, all the chords down as I’m shouting them out here.
All right, we have to move. We’re about six minutes in. Verse chords are going to go; it's all in four, so a measure per chord and sometimes we have two measures per chord but here we go (demonstration). So, D (demonstration), E (demonstration), G (demonstration), C (demonstration), D (demonstration), D (demonstration), G (demonstration), C (demonstration), D (demonstration), a split measure of F-G (demonstration), F (demonstration), G (demonstration), E (demonstration), okay.
We have a split measure, this is when we take two chords and share a measure. So, instead of it getting it four beats each chords gets two beats, a 2+2 equals four, and that’s a split measure (demonstration). Okay, so that’s our verse.
The chorus is going to go; G (demonstration), D (demonstration), C (demonstration), G (demonstration), there’s a D flat (demonstration), E (demonstration) and an A (demonstration), okay. So, we got two G’s (demonstration), a C (demonstration), a G (demonstration), two B flats (demonstration), an E and an A (demonstration), okay.
The B flat, you can play it in either bar chord that looks like your F and you can slide it all the way up to here to a B. this is F (demonstration), G (demonstration), an A (demonstration), A# (demonstration), B (demonstration) and then a B flat. This is the part we need so that the sixth fret you could do that or you could play this form where you put first finger right here and bar these three notes. I muted that high E string and I played the B flat like that (demonstration0, and then your E (demonstration) and an A (demonstration), okay.
This would be a good time for us to talk about that little lick because we’re running out of time. The licks on the fifth string is going to be 5-4-3, then on the sixth string 5-4-3 and then (demonstration) or D and a measure E (demonstration) and then an A (demonstration) and its in it’s staccato you just pop it like that
Okay, solo; two measures of B flat (demonstration), two measures of D (demonstration), two measures of B flat (demonstration), a measure of E (demonstration), a measure of A (demonstration).
Fade out. we got to hurry. We’re running out of time here. Fade out is a split measure of F-G just like what we did at the end of the verse; F (demonstration), G (demonstration) and 4 measures of D (demonstration); F (demonstration), G (demonstration) and a D (demonstration). Just repeat that. I believe it’s a fade out. It's going to occur once in the song.
