Easy Acoustic Guitar Song – Lou Reed Style
Hey, guys. Claude Johnson here with guitarcontrol.com. I want
to give you a real fast, mini lesson on Lou Reed’s song,
“Walk on the Wild Side”.
It’s going to start off C to F6 and this F6 chord, what
I’m doing here is I’ve got my middle finger on the 3rd
fret D string, first finger on the 2nd fret G string,
ring finger on the 3rd fret B string. So just these
three. There’s your strum pattern. Add the lyrics.
Basically the strum, I’m using what I call 16th note
pick-ups where you count it as an uh. So one, uh-two,
uh-three, uh-four; one, uh-two, uh-three, uh-four.
You’re going to C and F6 twice. Then you’ll go C to D, F to D.
When you do that part the strum is a little bit different.
It’s going to be like one, two, uh-three, four. There’s
just one uh in there between the two and the three. One,
two, uh-three, four; one, two, uh-three, four, and then
back to the other part.
So that’s a nice little song. There you go. You can add
that one to your repertoire. Check it out. I hope that
was cool for you. You can check out — if you’d like to
