Is it em 4 beats, g 4 beats and so on until two meausres of G before the verse or is there an additionalhalf-measure of Em as it seems by reading David's lesson?
Thanks in advance
In INTRO which is devided in 2 parts first part is fine but second part where you have to go from EM7 to A7sus4 and A7,( Example 4) there are two small fills, which you can here on MP3 file Number 3, BUT there are missing on TAB, on tab there's only one fill and I think its wrong.
So I may be some one who can play this song could help me, I know that you should play your way and not copying everything you see ,its just I thought with these little fills song sounds better.
Thank you and Regards
I do start out same as in the lesson but like to throw in some extra fills - quick arpeggios (3 finger noodle) on the top 3 strings during G... also the thing with going up to A or B and sliding back down to high G. This is an unbelievably handy move BTW I also mix up the A7 (prob with the A7sus4 harhar) by fretting high G with my pinkie (another incredibly handy move) to make it sound more like that missing extra guitar ( I hope) .
The transition to the verse gave me some trouble so I do a slide up from low G to A (instead of bending the low E string) and back and then try to hammer the open E into the G chord ( I think) and then strum G ... segue into verse.
Also I pick out the chords for the verse, that bad habit of laying down C one finger at a time again - and I am singing along in my head too to help keep some kind of rhythm going thru here.

I have the exact same problem. I just can't figure out, what he is actually playing, because it doesn't match the tab Can anybody give me a hint?
I just opened that lesson two days ago, and several people have heard me play it since then. A few of them began to sing along with it. Not one of them asked me why it didn't sound exactly like the original.
I think that, if you're trying to be a "purist" on this song, then maybe that lesson wasn't right for you.
I'm a beginner, but I'm happy when I can play a song that people recognize. It's an art, not necessarily a science. Right?
But that was not what I meant. I just can't get the parts 3 and 4 together! Just because the tabs don't match the notes David plays. I mean the tabs form the lesson. Not the original song tabs.
Im stuck there. The provided mp3 sounds great, but when i look at the tab its complete different to what he plays.
Originally, I thought I'd throw in a few other things that you might find interesting, but I'm thinking at this point that perhaps a â€œpart IIIâ€ is in order. That will cover playing both parts at once and some additional nifty ideas for you solo guitarists/singers.
Any chance that one exists or is in the works??
I'm a rank beginner and am working on this song. What a great song.
In the fifth audio down where the strumming in the verse is taught I'd like to be able to apply this to a metronome. However, I'm not sure how to apply it.
I believe the lesson says to strum as D DUUD DUU The last up are the treble strings open during the chord change.
What a great lesson I really like the way David Hodge breaks it down and speaks to the listener and how it doesn't have to be 100% accurate to sound nice. But I DO need to get the rhythm correct.
