This week’s new guitar lesson is on a song that is truly historic, and has been requested by loads of my students, Brown Eyed Girl.
The Van Morrison classic is often referred to as “THE” original pop song, with good reason. It’s pleasant, happy nature will fly you back to the ‘60s, to the field where Van Morrison wrote the song.
You can choose to play this one on either the acoustic or the electric, but better yet, try it on both. I’m using the electric in the tutorial, since that’s what can be heard in the original, but it’s really up to you.
You’ll be learning a whole bunch of very useful things in our Brown Eyed Girl guitar lesson, it really is an info filled lesson. Among other things, you’ll learn:
- how to strum without using a plectrum
- how to use 3rd intervals
- using ghost strums in between chord changes
- and many more techniques vital to advancing as a guitarist.
Once you’re comfortable with the things I teach you in the lesson, it’s imperative that you play along with the backing track on the lesson page, or even the original song. Playing along with backing tracks will really develop your sense of rhythm.
Brown Eyed Girl is really a great song that you’ll love playing, I wish you much success with it!
