It’s now time to learn your first song – The One I Love by REM.
Listen to Andy play some of the chords and parts of the melody line over our backing track, to give you a flavor of what you are going to learn.
Apart from the fact it is a great song, we have chosen this because it consists of 4 great beginner chords (Em, D, C and G) and has a simple structure making it easy to teach as we can easily break the song down into its component parts.
The song speed is 130 beats per minute (Andy will demonstrate what is meant by this) and we will be using a metronome, slowed down from this speed, to ensure you master the melody line and chords in style. So, let’s get started!
