  10. Hi Justin, great video thank you very much. I'm just starting with aoustic guitar and this is my first song. I really love johnny cash songs and this is my favorite.
    I manage to hit and change the different chords in the shown rhythm (base, down-up, base, up-down) but still have trouble to find out how often to play them for certain parts of the text.

    Could you give me an example for lets say the first verse?
