Hey, what’s up guys? It’s Aaron. First lesson I want to do tonight is this song “I Hope You Dance” by Leanne Womack. I had this one for at least quite some time and it’s actually a song that reminds me of my baby sister so, whenever someone requests for this tonight, I actually didn’t plan on doing this so I kinds of get lucky but standard turning. I’m just going to teach you some chords. For this standard tuning, put your capo on the third fret, find that new strings on acoustic so we’re better. The chords you need to know for this are E minor which is just on your the top string is your E string, it goes E, A, D, G, B, E. This is your fifth string. And this is your fourth starting from the bottom, one, two, three, four, five, six. So, all you’re going to do is put your pointer finger here on the fifth string which is the second string down from the top, second fret, middle finger on the next string down, the third string down, your D string, second fret, and that’s your E minor. Then from that E minor, you’re going to move to a C. You leave that middle finger there, pick up your pointer, put your ring on that second string down the third fret and your pointer’s going to go on this second string from the bottom, so one, two, your B string is first fret, pointer. So from here, lift your pointer up, play the middle the same, that’s your C. And then for a G, you can just take your middle finger and your ring and move them both up a string, and then put your pinky on the third fret of the high E for your G. And then for the D, I just bring my fingers on here, and this is your D. Pointer is on this G string which is your third string from the bottom, second fret. Second string up from the bottom is your ring finger on the third fret, and middle is in the second fret, high E string. So that’s your D. So it goes like this, E minor, C, G and the strum pattern I’m using is just, in the E minor, down, down, down, and you switch to C and go up, up, down, down, up, down, up, switch to G, down, down, down, up, up, down, down, up, down, up, to a D. So E minor, slow C, G, D. That’s the chords I use. The verse is just that G, “I hope you never lose your sense of wonder. You get your fill to eat.” E minor, “But always keep that hunger. Why you never take,” C. “One single breath for granted. God forbid love”, D. “Ever leave you empty handed” and I’m not going to sing that, because it’s a girl’s voice. For the “I hope you dance”, the chorus is just these four intro chords. E minor, C, G to D so strum pattern of this is down, down, down, up, up, down, down, up, down, up, down, down, down, up, down, down, up, down, up, down, down, down, up, up, down, down, up, up, down, up, down, down, down, up, up, down, down, up, down, up. The same strum pattern for all four chords. There is one thing you’ll notice in the verse, not the first verse, but the second, third and fourth. Let’s take for instance the second verse, “Whenever one door closes”, C. “I hope one more opens”, D. That’s your half measures instead of one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, there. One, two, on the set I mean, instead of one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, there goes four. So it’s just like one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four. So there’s one A minor on there on one of the parts but you can read the tab. Just click here on the tab. Play along with the song. If you get confused with what the chord shape is, run your cursor over the chord shape in the tab and it will actually pop a little picture of it so you can figure out what chord or where your fingers’ placing are. So, I hope this lesson helps. And I’ll try to get some more out for tonight. See you, guys.
