    Hi Tomas
    I have been looking several times how I can followe this course but at the end it always looks as in the beginning: Start course an 0% complete.
    I am also missing the strumming pattern. It is not enough for me to have you talking about it and showing it on the guitar. Could it be possible to have a sheet of paper with the movements written on it?
    Thanks for chosing this fantastic song. It makes me feel that I make part of America as well… (I am half Norwegian and half Luxemburger)

      Hi Sissel,
      I’m glad you like this. This is what I call a Quick Win lesson. It’s not a course. Just as a quick lesson on a single topic or song. The technology I’m using is not really friendly for single video lessons like this. What you’re seeing (0% Complete) is the only way it can work.

      There are no notes for this lesson either. But the strumming pattern is a very basic strum that you learn in the Beginner’s Journey. You can try Down Down/Up etc. But you’ll find no strum pattern will sound like what I’m doing until you learn the finer details of strumming. I start giving you strum lessons somewhere around adventure three or four, but the real work is an adventure six.

        Very clear. Thank you, it will come bit by bit!

    what was the rate of bpm?

    1. Tomas says:

      I’d say 120-130ish

    I am finding hard to coordinate singing and strumming at the same time. Please help
