"Small Town" Guitar Lesson Video (John Mellencamp)

Classic tune, great strum pattern and a nice twist on your traditional G, C and D chords ! If you’ve seen my video on the “D-C-G Trick” ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_qpDtfLgs8) you’ll recognize what John Mellencamp is doing here on “Small Town.” (You’ll need to capo up at the 4th fret if you want to play along with his recorded version.)

    this is good…but it's too basic, you need a vid. for advanced players…great video for beginners, but for someone who's been playing for 35 yrs…and as much as I like john cougar, I've never owned a recording f his…just wasn't into acoustics…AT ALL, just can't get the sounds out of them like electrics…thumbs up tho, yeah I'll sub your channell!!!

  5. thanks, sometimes the smallest lesson is able to make a quantum leap difference in my playing. thanks for sharing. tc

  6. very goog!! Hallo

  7. That sounded great and you explained it so clearly, thanks!

  8. Nice to see you posting a few videos here again Jonathan. +1 for counting, this one is quite basic for me (now), but overall if you know the count then you can practice with a metronome as slowly as you need.

  9. Great job. Your lessons are great and you seem like a very nice guy.
