    G G Em Em

    Almost heaven, West Virginia
    FOR G NOTE—————– ON STRUM PATTERN – WE PLAY E- STRING (ON TOP STRING-First from Top) is it correct ? and for Em we play E string again ?

  2. Hi Lauren: which string do you hit for the bass note of a C chord?

  12. Hello Lauren, from the UK. I've struggled with the guitar but enjoyed your tutorials. You may like to know that this tutorial works fine using my Baritone Ukulele and playing the same chords!

  13. Awesome lesson Lauren, and thank you for sharing. Perhaps my ear is weird, but I actually prefer the sound of the FM7 chord at that place in the song.
