and clean and going together G major E minor G major E minor and then went to the D major and C major join in three chords up together that’s what you can really work on when you’re practicing okay now the course of Cordero’s is very similar to the verse the strumming is exactly the same it’s just the chords are slightly different in a different order etc okay to play the course you’re going to put a G major again from the exact same pattern so I said and then we go to D major you did exactly of strong you in a manner exact seems from and then finally C major the exaction Shawn okay give me so many difference in the C major is you play that strumming pattern once so I’ll repeat that again for you G major D major twice a manor and the C major five frames one strumming pattern get back to the D major you so walked for what I’m going to do is we’re going to play the course and see if you plan on one two three four you you I play the full courser which is the tele the second time round

  1. Well….I have yet to conquer the guitar even after thirty years of dreaming….but you just gave me my first lesson that I primarily understood which means you must be a great teacher because playing music does not come to me naturally or anyone in my family (just profound appreciation for it). So far I take my only comfort in knowing that I made him a beaded guitar strap when I was fourteen which he kindly displayed in two of his videos including the movie “Foxfire” from 1987. I have saved this video in my favorites. Thank you for trying to help the musically challenged. I want to go some place quiet now and secretly try to see if I can even sound close to this….but my visual art is calling me back at the same time 🙂

  2. I finally found the the chords I used to play when I was younger. In John Denver’s guitar books, they use different chords….I knew if I hunted long enough, I would find my way home…..
