In this session we’re getting really familiar with the song and backing track. At this stage you should really know the song well and be able to sing along in your head – or out loud!
Although this is not the final pattern, with all the accentuations and fancy bits, this week is primarily about maintaining your rhythm and timing.
Note: Getting an even strum going does take practice – and maintaining timing is even harder (as I demonstrate!) This is a great discipline and grounding, and will make next week far easier and more fun as you’ll be able to really make the song come to life!
