More Info:
In this guitar lesson we’re going to be checking out how to play Rise by Gabrielle, huge hit that uses a sample of Nob Dylan’s guitar on Knockin On Heavens Door. The song is super easy if you just keep the strumming simple, but I go into a bit of detail about the strumming pattern used on the samples and how to emulate it!

  1. Anyone else notice 'gabiella'

  2. i love this…got it right first time

  3. what guitar are you using justin

  4. can you please show me how to play( out of reach by gabrielle)because no one else shows us how to play this great song

  5. Love that woman's voice. You're an excellent teacher, Justin. There are a lot of people teaching guitar out there who have the playing licks but you are the best teacher I've come across. Thanks. Really great stuff.

  6. like this was its better than the one I did with my girlfriend hahaha she wil not be happy if I can upload it

  7. Justin, you need to edit the info " a sample of nob Dylan's ".


  8. Made up with this! I'll be busking this song in Liverpool UK this summer. Beautiful song. I never realised it was so simple.

  9. it's not too easy…for me

  10. She should sing the 40 years old song Starlight by Trúbrot.

  11. Nob Dylan?

  12. The other way to add rhythm to this song is to drop the Am7 on and off and incorporate that into the strumming. This gives you extra options to vary the rhtyhm of the song in a very simple way.

  13. Anyone else notice how the sound is unbalanced? Hardly anything coming out of my left headphone or is it just me?

  14. bbbbbbbbbbbbbgbbbbbb

    Justin has a lot of his originals on his Youtube, so you can look those up.. Don't know about her, though..
    Cheers 🙂
