I’m A Believer Riff

So for this How To Play “I’m a Believer” by The Monkees lesson we have a riff and a chord progression that is happening, we have a verse and a chorus. So the first thing that I would like to show you is the riff because it’s the coolest part. So the riff goes a little bit like this… So what’s happening here we have the index finger on the third fret of the fifth string, coming on to the fifth fret of the fifth string. Then what you’re gonna put your index finger a little bit like this, bending a little bit and you’re going to play the third fret of the fourth string just like that. So repeat that and then you’re going to play it at the same speed, but now the third time you want to believe it faster. So that’s for the beginning of the song and this part is also going to appear at the end of the song. Okay so now for the verses for How To Play “I’m a Believer” by The Monkees.

Verse

We have a G major; middle finger on the third fret of the six, index finger on the second fret of the fifth, third finger on the third fret of the 2nd and pinkie on the 3rd for the first. Now the rhythm that we’re going to play with this song, specially in the verse, is going to be down, down, up, down, up and down… so that’s going to be for the G. Then we’re going to go into a C and we’re going to do down, down, up, down, up, down and then we go back to the G and we’re going to repeat the G twice. Okay now to the chorus for How To Play “I’m a Believer” by The Monkees.

Chorus

For the chorus we start with the G and we’re going to divide this in groups of four chords. It’s going to easy, so we have down, down, down and then we go to the C, down, down, down, again to the G, down, down, again to C, down, down and we’re going to repeat that four times. Now you repeat the riff that the song starts with.
