Easy Songs For Stage 4
Lots more tunes you can have fun with now we added in the Fmaj7 :)
Don't forget to play along with the original recordings if you can get your chord changes fast enough. It's great fun and has BIG benefits, most importantly, helping you with your rhythm which is the weak point for the majority of guitar players!
If you can't quite get a song up to speed, you can use software like Transcribe! to slow the song down but keeping it at the same pitch. I use this tool all the time when learning any song that's difficult, playing it slower and getting it perfect is really important and you'll find once you can do it spot on slowly, it doesn't take long to get it up to speed - gradually bump the speed up bit by bit until you're at 100%.
Songs you learned earlier are probably starting to sound better now too but don't forget to keep working on them. Just cos you moved up a stage doesn't mean you should stop playing the earlier songs, now you should be really working them and making them sound awesome!
Play Along With Original Recordings!
Playing along with the original recordings is great fun and will help you with your rhythm feel and force you to make the chord changes faster (to keep up!) but to do this you will sometimes need to Use A Capo, a Stage 6 lesson that will be moved to Stage 1 when I next remake this course! Using a Capo means the frets will be closer together and so make it harder to cram your fingers in (especially for the A Chord) which although harder at first can also be great practice! :) I recommend getting and using a capo and playing along with the original recordings as soon as you can!
The JustinGuitar Beginner Song Course
As well as playing along with the original recordings, it can be awesome fun to play along with backing tracks... and my app does just that! There are hundreds of songs that are graded by the difficulty to play along with, as well as a One Minute Changes tracker, Chord Change Songs and exclusive video lessons! It's a pretty awesome tool for beginners, getting rave reviews and it's free to try out, so go have a look! Available for Apple iOS and Android!
