Hey guys, it’s Aaron. This next song is really simple. It is called Hurt by Johnny Cash. It is one of my favorite songs actually, but this little thing here, the whole song—basically it is really three chords the whole time. You start out with Am which is middle and ring finger on the 2nd fret of your D and G, your two middle strings, pointer finger on your B, 5th string on the top, 2nd from bottom and pointer finger on the 1st fret.
So the strumming of that, you just play your A string and then play your A string, then your D string so if you if you are numbering one, two, three, four, five, six you play two, three then you strum from two all the way to five. Then you just lift that ring finger up and move it down to the 3rd fret of your A string which makes a C chord and then you play the same thing. Then you switch to your D chord, which is pointer finger on the 2nd fret of the G string, ring finger 3rd fret of your B string and high E string 2nd fret with your ring finger. When you are pulling this one, you play the D string and then the G and then you strum all the bottom four. And then you go back to the Am. Play that in the entire intro and the verse.
So now we have that, the only thing you need to learn now is the chorus. At the end of the verse, it is the needle. [Demo]
And at the last, you start strumming with the G. So you are ending everything, starting the chorus at G, and that is all down strums. The chorus is Am to an F but you are not going to do a bar chord F on this one. It sounds much better if you just through an Am we do like the one in intro. The strumming pattern will be just down, like that, it is all down strums.
So what are you going to do is you are going to start with that G where you finish the verse everything. Am, then you go to switch to the F, you leave that pointer finger there, it is a common finger. So you lift this ring finger up and you are actually going to take your middle and move it down, so your middle finger is going to be on the 2nd fret of your E, A, D, G string, 2nd fret, so your four string down, your middle finger is going to be there on the 2nd fret of your G string. Then you are going to take your ring and pinky and place it on the A and D strings on the 3rd frets. And then after F, you are going to go to C, so to go to C you are going to leave your pointer and your ring and all you are going to do is lift your middle up and put it down on the D string of the 2nd fret.
And actually that Am to the very end of the chord is like—
As far as I am looking, everything seems the same in that. The first verse obviously and the chorus, and the second verse and then chorus then the altro is just—it is weird because I am seeing some people playing it like this and they are strumming it.
[Demo] But I think it says on this tab—I am going to show you because I think it is good for the chords. It says—[Demo] and it strums at Am and so it rings. But in actuality, I think it lets the C ring. So I am going to leave this tab for you because it has got I think good for being with strolling along with the lyrics.
There is another tab that I looked at that I also put the link to. Okay, never mind, that is right. I am just going to give you that one tab because that one tab I think is the best one for you. So I hope this helps guys. If you like Johnny Cash, I hope this did some justice. Good luck learning it and I am going to try to get some more videos up tonight. See you guys.
