Teacher – Hal Stead
This lesson has been geared for the more beginning guitarist. I’ve taken out the melody in the Intro and a lot of the harder picking patterns and barre chords so it should be more accessible to the beginning guitarist.
We have the advanced version partially shot and we have begun editing already so watch for that version in a few weeks.
In the meantime there should be a few other videos published just before that one. Start on this version and you’ll be ahead of the game.

Thanks for coming by, watching, and being a part of our channel!

Take care and have fun with this song!,

    Thank you for this. You have made it much easier for me to learn this song.
    Iโ€™m playing it for my cousin who passed away.

  2. thats cool and all that but how is this easy

  3. I like your arrangement for this song and the way you play it. It sounds nice. But it seems that you are giving a confusing explanation on how the strings for the song notes should be picked especially the notes F#M and F#M/E. For example, at about 3:35 the picking that you say is used throughout the song for the F#M and F#M/E notes leaves out the high E note and you pick the inside strings namely D,G, and B. Then, when you get to about 4:53 for the same notes F#M and F#M/E you pick and explain that the strings to picked are G,B, and E. So, can you explain how the strings those two notes, F#M and F#M/E should be picked. So far, I am confused by your explanations about the picking of strings for these two notes. Perhaps you need to explain that the strings for the F#M and F#M/E notes are picked differently depending whether one is playing the introduction or the chorus section. Please advise.
