Here´s another video clip from the lastest guitar course by Jon Maclennan!
Rhythm Guitar Lesson Chord Progression for Stand By Me
This next example is in the style of Ben E. King and it’s a great
soul tune called “Stand By Me”. It sounds something like this.
So lots of familiar things here. Hopefully you’re recognizing
some of the chords and also the strumming pattern that we used.
In “Brown Eyed Girl” we used it and the Green Day song, “Time
of Your Life” we used it. In “I Want to Hold Your Hand”, the
Beatles. It’s everywhere. The strumming pattern sounds
something like this.
The chord shapes here are A for two bars, then down to F
sharp minor, which is our barre chord on the 2nd fret.
Remember to just double stack your fingers there. To D
for one measure, to E for one measure and A.
