A 2nd fret middle finger E 3rd fret ring finger That makes things a lot easier for me as it allows me to keep a finger on the B note second fret on the A string during this entire melodic phrase.
The third melodic phrase measures four and five is, note for note, exactly the same as the one in the first two measures. The only thing that has changed is the chord underneath. So simply keeping the Fmaj7 intact as long as possible should work fine.
I will have to open up the B string at one point, but again, just as with the Am, it should work out fine. After all this moving around, the Em7 is going to be a breeze. This is, I feel, the simplest way to incorporate the melody. But I know that a lot of people like to use this method: It rings out, and usually the listener hears it very clearly.
This is a great exercise for learning to strum accurately. Likewise, on the first note of the second measure, the A note second fret, G string is the one I want to sound last, so hitting the B string is strictly taboo.
Take your time getting this right. The phrase in the two measures of G should prove easier than those with the Am or Fmaj7, since the G melody is all on the same string the Bwhile the Am and Fmaj7 melody phrases use notes on the first three strings.
And, again, the Em7 should provide you with a welcome resting spot. So now we have two different ways of strumming with the melody. Which one shall we use? Both of these methods have their place and we will certainly be seeing them again in the course of our lessons.
Please feel free to come up with as many different strumming ideas as you can. Funny how these things work out. To simply stop for a whole note would bring everything to a crashing halt try it and hear for yourself. Arpeggios, even simple ones, fill the space in a manner more consistent with the first three measures and keep the song flowing.
I cannot stress enough the importance of taking all of this one step at a time. What you want to do is to try to focus on bringing out the melody, getting it heard above all the business in the background. I also want to give you a second version of the last measure of the verse: I tend to use the first version I showed you as a way to go into the chorus, as you can use the rhythm and your own volume to build some dramatic tension.
After all this work, the chorus is going to be a walk in the park! Most of it consists of this strumming pattern: Just to do something different. And so we set forth onto the next verse or simple end the song by playing half a verse and then ending on Am.
I hope you had fun with this lesson and have fun with this song. While this may not have seemed as involved as some of our intermediate lessons, what you have no pun intended picked up here will be something that you can use in almost all the songs you play.
I hope that you continue to experiment with strumming patterns — using full chords, partial chords, single notes and arpeggios. Work in the melody lines or add a bass line.
