[Music Playing] Hey how are you doing? Andy Collins with you for another nailguitar.com lesson, today we’re taking a look at Rihanna, Rude Boy. A bit of hip-hop and action for you and we’re putting it on to the guitar so here’s what’s going to happen. I’m going to give you a super-super easy version if you completely knew the guitar you’ll be able to follow through it. Then a layer on top of it and give you more and more details so you can make it bigger and especially for people who are more advanced so you want to dig in to those sorts of things. So to make things super easy for you, I’ve written up a tab to follow through this lesson, to get it click the link underneath. It will take you to nailguitar.com, dot com? Yeah dot com and right there on the page, find it, click it and print it out, follow along or watch on your computer. So what I’m going to do is I’m going to play through give a bit of example and then I’ll break a part for you, here we go. [Music Playing] Ok so there is each of the part, so there, there’s the super, super simple right at the start, just the bass, the single notes but itself. Then I layer it out a bit with some doubled notes and then I take it all away up to chords. You only have a section, we’ve got is the bridge so the verse and the chorus is actually the same thing and that’s the reason I’m giving you this layers so you can make it busier, thicker and then simpler for the verse and that sort of thing. Now what you heard me playing along there was some free drum tracks that you can get as well. Cool give me drums I got the link underneath for that with ten free mp3’s, there’s nothing like playing along with a super solid drums to get your playing super, super solid. So let’s dig in, the very-very first bit with our bass is going to be, I’m going to zoom in so you can see a little easier. So we’ll going to start out with an open fat A string, the top string there. And we got a bit of a rest and then from there we’re going to put our second finger on the A string second fret, we’re going to hit that four times. We’re going to hit, so 1, 1, 2, 3 and then we’re going to move our third finger there onto our third fret on the A string. So, so far. [Music Playing] And then from there we’re going to do the same rhythm except with open and second fret on that A string. So you put that all together, you get. [Music Playing] Great, so that’s the very, very starting point and you can add more to thicken it up from there. So if you want to do that, what we’re going to do is we’re going to get and Em chord, maybe we’re going to use our second and third finger. Normally you use your first and your second but you’ll see why as we go through this. So basically do the same thing but we’re adding more strings to thicken up the harmony. So we’re going to get bass, bass, that fat A string and then we’re going to strum the rest of this Am chord. So it’s going to be our second and third fingers on the A string and D string second fret. [Music Playing] And then from there we’re just going to take away our third finger and then we’re going to hit the A string and the D string, so five times. [Music Playing] Now you can do this all with downs but you’ll find it in the long run to get the speed, you want to do downs and ups. So down, up, down, up, down, and then from there your second finger is going to move down a string and we’re going to add our third finger. What we’re going to play a C chord which is what we’re going to do in the next step. So second fret on the D string, third fret on the A string and just striking those two strings. So we get. [Music Playing] Great so far. [Music Playing] Let can take a while to get that down and up strum happening smoothly. [Music Playing] Getting the volume of it, consist at it and it will really help you out with lots of your playing. From there we’re now going to get a full C chord so add our first finger on there and we’re going to get bass, bass, chord. So the bass is the A string, bass, bass, strum. [Music Playing] So similar to what we did on the A chord, and now we’re going to do similar as what we did bottom four, we’re now going to get. [Music Playing] This one is a part of an A chord here, so open A string second fret on the D and then simply moving your first finger up a string, so. [Music Playing] So if you have trouble following through at all I’m sure you got the tab and it will help you out lots. So I’ll play that all through it. [Music Playing] Alright to seize with that and you get there step by step because that is all about. So if you want to take things further and you want to get some cool tab and to really thicken this up for the chorus here’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to do very similar things rhythmically but we’re going to do full chords so I kind of twist this around to make it get across the divide of the song as much as possible with these chords. We’re going to start of with the same as we did before, we’re going to get bass, bass, chord on the Am there. And from there we’re going to get Bm.
