Coming Home Guitar Lesson (Leon Bridges) Electric Guitar Tutorial

Check out my new guitar lesson on how to play Coming Home by Leon Bridges on electric guitar.

I transcribed this from the original recording, and this live performance from NPR Music’s Tiny Desk was really helpful –

This is a song to give you a good barre chord workout. The song is in the key of F# major which means every chord is a barre chord, with either the bass note being on the low E string or the A string. I’ll take you through both possibilities.

The song is also in the time signature of 6/8. This is an example of a COMPOUND meter, which means that each beat can be split into 3 8th notes (rather than 2 which we expect in 4/4 or any other SIMPLE meter). We can count all the 8th notes as we play ‘1 2 3 4 5 6’ but it’s more valuable to count the two beats and add an ‘and’ and ‘a’ for the other 8th notes within each beat. So, if we count a measure in 6/8 it would go “1 and a 2 and a”.

PLEASE give me a thumbs up if you enjoyed the guitar tutorial, and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT, LIKE and SHARE.
