Over the last few days I’ve been working on strumming as well as putting in some new chords. The first attempt was Brown Eyed Girl, which was great practice and I managed to get the hang of it. I also did Paperback Writer which can be described as mainly G but with a little bit of C. Because you don’t have to change much you can concentrate on the strumming pattern.
I started poking around at a few songs that came to mind, and settled on You Don’t Need the Sunshine by Catatonia. This has a whole lot more new chords and I’ve been giving myself a proper workout trying to do it properly!
