  • HEY GMC!

    Welcome to the first in a series of beginner pieces that aims to get you started with the guitar. The first tune is a traditional piece called 'Swing Low Sweet Chariot' which has a lovely melody that is perfect when starting out on the guitar.

    The main focus of this lesson is looking at what fingers we should use when fretting the guitar and how to pluck the strings with our index finger.

    I hope you enjoy this piece and check out the next video for a more detailed break down of the piece.


    KEY: F major
    TEMPO: 74BPM
    TIME: 4/4
