The Blower's Daughter by Damien Rice

As well as just being an amazing, beautiful song, this is a great tune for learning to use your dynamics - the use of loud and soft playing.

Start with the basic strumming pattern I show in the video- and then listen to the original and try and copy the delicate way that he plays the tune.

I have had a few problems with the vid, so it may look a little squashed, sorry, I am trying to sort it out to record them in HD, and it seemed to work before... but now it is taking too long to export them as HD, so I think I'm gonna go back to the old skool square vids...
