Foo Fighters – Times Like These (Acoustic) guitar lesson for beginners
These videos are designed for guitar beginners or those with only limited guitar knowledge. They use simple chord shapes as much as possible and do not necessarily represent the way in which the original song was originally played. They are designed as practice tools to supplement your other learning methods. Information is provided on screen for both right and left-handed players!
The acoustic version of Times Like These takes the chords from the original electric version of the song and strips them down further, while still allowing for some small embellishments to come through. A very simple song for the most part, just try to get your little finger up to the 3rd fret of the high E string to get the sound right on a few of those chords.
The quiet middle section of those uses a 7/4 time signature which may feel weird at first. The tempo doesn’t change but you need to count 7 beats per bar instead of the usual 4.
