Hey there kids, Your Guitar Sage. Today, we’re going to learn how to play I Will Follow You Into the Dark by Death Cab For Cutie. I’m just going to jump into right away for those of you that can just watch what I'm doing and get it, then great! For those of you that can’t stick around, we’ll talk about the bits and pieces, the chords, the strumming, rhythm and all that good stuff. I'm looking at my chart here on my screen, so here we go. I can go to that five and it’s going to go something like this…
So the verse would go something like this…
And then, we’ll go back to—so that’s the intro, that’s the verse. The chorus is…
So, of course, that chorus is the same as the intro. Now, we can play the whole tune through because we’ve got a lot of repeating parts and we’ve got a lot of stuff to talk about here. So, the verse is every time—well, we’ll talk about the verse in a minute, the bridge is going to go…
Go back in the chorus.
This the last one.
Okay, so there’s our ending there with our guitar slowing down. So here, let’s talk about the chords now. But first off, I like to capo this song at the fifth fret, you can do bar chords if you want. I just find it’s easier to do it on the capo at the fifth fret. The chords that you’re going to need for this are [demonstration] A minor, C, F, and you’re going to need basically a G with a B on the bass. So, instead of playing with a G, you’ll play it with a B on the bass [demonstration]. So I’m going to play the low E there. You’re going to need an [demonstration] E major, you can get an A minor, and then A minor with a G on the bass, or you can play it like this [demonstration] Am7 with a G on the bass. So basically, grab your Am7, let your ring finger play that G. Then, you’re going to be playing an [demonstration] F major, F minor, C. I think that that’s it. That’s it as far as the chords in the tune.
Let’s talk about this one piece at a time. The intro, and all the chorus is, except for the last one, we’ll talk about that in a minute, but the intro and the first three chords will go like this. The song is in four, it’s four beats per measure and must—these are full measured chords, we’ll have a few split measures which—it’s going to have two chords of shared measure or two beats per chord. Guys, it’s going to go something like this. I’m going to strum out the chords, here in our screen—and by the way, let me stop here real quick, if you want to get a hold of this chart and if you’re having issues, you need further help with any of the techniques that I'm talking about here, how to use your capo, how to hold these chords, how to do strumming, how to read charts, and all that good stuff, go to yourguitarsage.com and get the eBook. It will really help you out in nicely.
Okay, here we go. The chords for the intro and the chorus are [demonstration] A minor, and I’ll just say what the chord is, I’m not going to tell you how many measures because it’s all for one measure each time I say it, okay. So here we go, so [demonstration] Am, C, F, a split measure, so meaning two beats per chord, C, G with a B on the bass, or you could play an Em7 with a B on bass. It sounds like…
Okay, two beats for each one of those. And then, the second one is going to go like [demonstration] A minor, C, G, G, A minor, C, E major, and then this A major, Am7 with a G on the bass, and has two beats per split measure. Full measured half [demonstration], full measured half-minor, two measures of C. Okay, so keep going, we have stuff to do here. The verse is going to go two measures of [demonstration] C, two measures of A minor, two measures of F, one measure of C, and a measure of G, two measures of C, two measures of A minor, two measures of F, a measure of C, a measure of G.
Hey, Your Guitar Sage, didn’t that part repeat twice just now? Yeah, it did. The verse is basically the same thing but you repeat it twice for each verse. I think there are three verses at this tune. So there’s your intro, the first three choruses, the first three verses, and here’s the bridge [demonstration] A minor, F, F, F, F. So one A minor and four Fs.
The last chorus is going to go like this [demonstration] A minor, C, F, here’s our split measure [demonstration] C, G with a B on the bass, A minor, C, two measures of G, A minor, C, E major, A minor, this is our split bar again [demonstration] A minor, Am7 with a G on the bass, F for full measure, F minor for full measure, and then you got to hold that through a C for three beats, one, two, three, [demonstration]. Then that little walk down is three beats of C, one beat of this G with a B on the bass, one, two, three, four, whole measure of A minor. I’m going slow for you, [demonstration] F for a whole measure, F minor for a whole measure, C for a whole measure.
Kids, that’s the whole song as far as the chords. Let’s talk about the strumming rhythm, we got like a minute to wrap this up and guys, are there anything else or something, here are the strumming rhythm that I use. It goes like…
It’s a basic rhythm of one, two and, and four, and one, two and, and four, and one, two and, and four, and. Or you can the do the alternative which is one, two and, and 4, and one, two and, and 4. So, on the two, you karate chop the strings and mute it, okay.
