Hey, what’s up? It’s Aaron. I’m going to do one lesson for you guys tonight. I’ve been getting a lot of request for this song by Zac Brown Band called “Chicken Fried.” A new kind of song, pretty popular, so at first glance this song, the only chords you need are E, B, A. The only problem with this is that it’s kind of a pretty quick changing song from the chorus. So, if you don’t like bars but you want to learn the song, it’s got one bar in it. So at least give it a shot. Try and work at it. It’s the only way you’re going to get better. But, alright standard tuning, guitar’s on standard tuning, E, A, D, G, B, E. Capo’s on the second fret and then what you’re going to do is the basic structure for the verse is just E to B to B to A and then it goes back to B. So, it goes E to B to A to B and it does that four times and twice for each verse. So the very beginning of the song, I guess you take the first part of the song as actually the chorus. The word says, “You know I like my chicken fried. Cold beer on a Friday night, a pair of jeans that fit just right, and the radio up”. The way he plays the chorus is a little different so I’m actually going to start you off with the verse. But I want you to recognize the very first part of the song. It’s actually the chorus. The first lyrics that he sings are the chorus. You don’t see that often but just keep that in mind so you don’t say, “Oh it doesn’t match”. I just want to teach you the verse first, alright. The structure like I said, this goes from E to B to A, back to B. Now, the first chord is your E. So capo is on the second fret. So, pointer finger is down here on your third string up from the bottom. Alright, your G string, first fret and then middle and the ring on the second fret on your A and D string. You guys should know what an E is. If you don’t, you can Google it, or look in over at the info box, click more info to tabs, where all my videos are always in the info box, you just have to click more info sometimes. So that’s where the tabs are. Alright, this is your E as the first chord. Next chord, you’re going to switch to is a B major, and you guys need to play that as a bar. Sorry, but you do. So you have to bar across on the second fret above the capo, bar across the bottom five strings and this top string is muted. The main sense is it’s based on this second string down. You want your bass note to be on here, not the E string, so you rest kind of the tip of your pointer. I can put it across these and you just slide up so it’s barely touching this low E string so it mutes it. And then once you have that bar there, down here on the fourth fret above the capo, one, two, three, four, your bar is on the second fret. On the fourth fret above the capo, starting from the bottom, you go first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth string. Your second, third and fourth strings need to be held down four frets above the capo. So the way you’re going to do this is going to be difficult. You guys probably cannot get it first. It will be kind of you’ll mute some of the strings, and it sounds rattley but stick with it and you’ll get it. See how my finger is like this, my ring finger, alright. If you push up on the tip of your ring finger, you see how the front knuckle flattens out, but this is still bent here. So basically, what you want to do is you want to press this part of your finger right down on the three strings to where it bends like this. That way you play those three, and then there’s a gap here above your string, so you’re not going to mute any of the other ones. So basically that’s what you want to do there. Now, that’s your second chord. The third one is an A chord. You can play your A however you want. I just play it for convenience. I play a bar. Alright, so across the second, third, and fourth string which is actually, starting from the bottom, is your B, your G, and your D, on the second fret above the capo. Alright, that’s you’re A chord. I just bar across here. If you mute the high E, don’t worry about it. You’re not going to be able to tell really when you start playing. Alright, now the strum pattern is basically the same for all four of those chords in the verse. You have down, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, switch to B, down, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, to A, down, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, back to B, down, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up. If you have trouble picking that up throughout the bat, sit down and just pause the video, and write it down because I just said it, so just do that. So it sounds like this bat up. [Demonstration] So that’s what the verse is. Then when you get into the chorus, which is the part where he says, “You know I like my chicken fried. Cold beer on a Friday night, a pair of jeans that fit just right, and the radio up”, that part, it’s a little different. And also like I said earlier, remember that that chorus is the part that he plays right at the beginning of the song, so it’s not the first verse. Alright, so the chorus, “You know I like my chicken fried’, it goes from an E to the B, “Cold beer on a Friday night.” “A pair of jeans that fit just right” is A, “And the radio up” is not just one chord. You’re going to go, “And the radio up”. “And the radio up,” so you’re going to have an E, and you go down, down, up, up, down, up, switch to your B. So it’s going to sound like this all the way through. I’m going to play the E, and I’m going to play the B, back to the A, and then the E, B. The E, B at the end is kind of quicker, but you’ll see it when I play it. So that last one, I switched to it. From the E, from the beginning is, down, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, switch to B, down, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, to A, down, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, “And the radio”, down, up, down, up, up, down, up, B, down or you can play down, up, down. So it’s up to you really. So from the top of the, just for the chorus, start with an E, go to your B, go to an A, and finish with an E to a B really quick so E B to A to E to B. Alright, that is really it. It’s just the chorus and the verse. There’s not really, there’s not really much of a bridge to it. It’s kind of a different way this song is set up. But take a look at the tab in the info box. I hope this helps you guys. And the website is coming along good. So remember, December 25th. Alright, take care.
