Hey, Rhythm Strummers. Here is an easy way to play this great Beetles Tune.
Hi, here’s a chord sheet and a strum pattern that works great for a lot of different songs.
What I’ve got here is a C7 chord. On this C7 chord holds down four strings and it’s between the first and third frets. And I can take that shape and move it up two frets now it’s a D7 chord without having to change a bunch of fingers to go to a new location other than sliding up the same strings and the same shape. I can go two more frets up, now it’s an E7, one more fret and now it’s an F7 just like that. It’s super helpful when you know how to change shapes, very handy.
And we’re going to use that for this exercise here to learn how to move around in this course without having to change shapes at all. Alright, so what I’d like to do is start out with just the C7 using this strum pattern. If you’ll look you’ll notice this down-up and then the third arrow is dark with an X through it and the bold arrow tells you that’s it a louder stroke and the X tells you what we call a scratch stroke.
The scratch stroke is where you just play the chord without holding the strings down and you might mute it with you’re right hand too, so it just stimulates like a drum beat, a snare beat and you’ll notice that song beats two and four. So it sounds like one and two and three and four.
Well, let’s practice with the C7 chord just playing that strum pattern a bunch of time so you get use to it.
One and stroke and two and scratch and one and two and three and scratch like that.
And three and four, and one and two and three and four, let’s keep going, one and two and three and four, one and two and three and four, I’m letting go with the chord on the scratches one and two and three and four, but not taking my fingers off the strings.
One and two and three and four, one and two and three and four, four more times. One and two and three and four, one and two and three and four, two more times, one and two and three and four, here we go one and two and three and four end like that.
Now what I’d like to do is move the chord, so we’re going to start it out here between frets one and three as a C7. Then we’ll slide it up and the way you do that is just to release the tension on the strings at your finger. Don’t push them down. Just let them rest on the strings and pretend they’re little rails and slide them up between frets, three and five.
That’s a D7 chord and then slide it up two more frets between five and seven. Now it’s an E7. Now, between six and eight it gives us the F7, so we’re going to play the pattern one time per chord at a nice slow speed and whip that a bunch of times to get use to that kind of move and keep this going pattern, too just like real music.
One and two and three and four D chord, up to D7, now we go to F, C, and up to D one and two and three and four, up to F, back to C.
Back to C.
Let’s do this one more time.
And we’ll end on this F chord and three and four end like that. Here’s how all of that applies to “Day Tripper.”
