B = Bass

So pick the relevant bass string of whatever chord you're on - for instance for G pick the 3rd fret low E string, then strum D dudu etc.

all the best

Ok..

Am I correct in saying that to fret the D chord it is ( xx0323 )?? That is how I have been playing it anyways. So how do you know that you have to fret it on the 3rd fret for a bass note?

I guess after what I've read that most strumming patterns don't mean life or death anyways, but I'd rather know as much as possible :P

Brucie

I think you mean xx0232 for the D - hope so anyway!

For the D chord - you use the open D string for your bass, not one of the fretted strings.

In general, the bass notes for the "common" chords are as follows -

A - pick the open A string
C - pick the fretted A string, 3rd fret
D - pick the open D string
E - pick the open E string
F pick the low E string fretted at 1st fret
G - pick the low E string fretted at the 3rd fret.

I hope this clears it up a bit!

regards

Matt

Hey Matt,

Good to see you're back on the boards. I was playing this song last night. Had great fun trying to sing it like Dylan. Good job I was up the end of garden in the summerhouse (Huh! Summerhouse thats a laugh! galeforce winds and rain and black as your father's hat) but its cosy up there now that it stands in as my music room and Trish's sewing workshop.

hiya Chris

I wondered if anyone would remember me to be honest!!!

Boy this site's come on leaps and bounds since i last visited, I like the index on the ESD.

Might even put a song up soon, but don't play as often as i used to mate.

Nice to hear from you, all the best

Matt
