I think something is wrong with my headphones..is it just me?
my right ear does not hear anything..i dont know what to do!!!
STRUMMING BUT NO HUMMING TO GO ALONG WITH IT ?
There are tons of songs with this pattern. Also, "open" chords are just chords where there are at least one string that is played without fretting. Have a great day! +Sammy Bones  #chords   #guitarnotes   #openchords  
So good and very good looking as well ummmmm ummmmm good lol
that is basically the same pattern for time of your life, the green day lesson they had. the non arpegiated version by the way i dont know how to spell arpegiated
I love the part where you had to quickly do the strums just to make sure you were going to explain it right :p very recognisable for me, lol.
Its not the reverb, just the tone is a bit not right for my ears. But its not a vid on how to make a guitar sound good, so its fine ;)
it isn't actually a mistake :D ... she doesn't have to worry about the strumming, it comes naturally :) they are not mechanical processes, that's why she has to think first :) Amazing lesson for me, a beginner :) thankz
i think it might be so with at least classical guitar, but when playing rock, blues, and many other genres of guitar based music, reaching over the neck w/the thumb is actually REQUIRED for proper string bending. besides i see almost all of the legends play this way and they seem to be doing just fine.
Good Lesson, though I don't really approve of reaching over with your thumb so you mute the string, its a bad habit to form and best you learn now then having to kill the habit later
hehehe she's so cute...good job! thanks for the video...
its cute when she makes little mistakes... good lesson
probably trying to make that crappy hole-mounted pickup sound better. Why not just a use decent little pencil condenser placed within a couple feet of the sound hole and 12th fret? Her voice is obviously mic'd. Why can't the guitar be properly mic'd as well? Or if you're producing a "pro-level" teaching video, why not have a guitar with a built in mic, like a Taylor w/a Fishman pickup & mic combo, all mounted inside the body? Much simpler with far better results.
if you play a D is nearly impossible to miss both the E and A strings.
NVM, ppl who arn't pros make mistakes too lol C E G
hey im thinking of getting a guitar but idk what kind or where i should get for a new guy. any suggestions?
hehe. even pros make mistakes ;) Godd lesson though!
this sounds sorta like morning glory
nice lesson Jen. i love the way you break it all down without being impatient or condescending. i love the whole gang at lext level guitar, but you are my personal favorite.
jeez lol thats some violant strumming.
thx a lot! my girlfriend loves it!
what acoustic is that and what is the pickup and reverb?
why is it a bad habit? I think it makes playing guitar a lot easier and you will need it when you're playing funk, there you have to mute several strings, what mostly cant be done comfortably without reaching over with your thumb. this is a white spread myth. Young guitar players: Keep on reaching over with your thumb!
before you started, i knew you were going to downdownupupdown it. david is always stuck into that rythm as well, D-D-U-U-D(-U), c'mon, there are plenty others! don't get me wrong, your vids are still great.
jennifer rox!!! rawwrrrrr!!!!
yes best suggestion get a piece of crap and learn basics if your serious enough and continue and find yourself playing every day go out and buy a 500-1000 dollar one or the best you can afford; If you wait a little while your ears will get accustomed to hearing tones better then you will probably be able to identify the better sounding guitars/ or even better do like i did and get a guitar teacher to help you go pick one out. If you got time to play you will choose a guitar over a woman!
Actually, Jennifer, David and Tim ROCK. Rock On Good People! -David Chesney
WOW.....that was great, probely at the right stage im at also,ive tried that same strumming pattern with other songs too and they soung wicked. plus your beautiful so that helps when im listning lol.....(joke)but not about the beautiful part cuz u are ....THANKS ALOT
if it's your first guitar and it's you want an electric, I would say a Fender or Squire Stratocaster if you can't afford the Fender. They're pretty light and have a bunch of tones you can mess around with. Not to mention they have whammy bars. everyone loves a good whammy bar. lol
I have a EG523SC takamine and it's just awesome. about 500$
For a beginner, looking at instruments that may not be immediately obvious is a great idea... Fender, gibson and co really dont excell at beginner instruments, you really can be loaded with a real piece of crap... Yamaha give a lot for the money and maybe even try some of the lower mid range ibanez.... Beware the cheap wammy bar in general though... tremeloed guitars at entry level will seldom be any use and defo wont keep tune when you use it. Good luck!
