Awesome, I needed this, I only fingerpick at the moment because I can't strum to save my bum.
Good Lesson, What guitar is that may I ask?
wow, sounds really cool
Cool chord progression Jerry,well done!!
I think thats a cort. But it sounds to nice for a cort
Thank you, guys!
The guitar is a Yamaha FGX-412.
It's not an expensive guitar, but it's sound good.
Nice chords! Good work Jerry!
that reminds me alot of dave matthew's Crash Into Me, the intro...
Uhm... I don't know this song, right now.
I will listen to it.
ahh sounds very nice...i really needed this lesson to improve my acoustic playing! Thanks jerry!
Yeah Pacman is has a Dave Matthews vibe
Jerry youve done it again ! Im working on this , your other funky groove lessons and some alternate picking stuff
Bravo - John
Well without the backing track I can play it perfectly, you know what that means, Back to the drawing board - Arriverdici, John
Arrivederci a presto (some like see you soon) Eat-Sleep-andJam!! :-)
A very fun lesson indeed!
Hey Jerry, do you think you could do a lesson on using Arpeggios that sound good with this chord progression? Great lesson btw
FretDancer69: I schedule this one and I will make it as soon as possible.
This is great! I loved it i will learn to asap! also, you should do a lesson on the techique used in the song Crazy by Barenaked Ladies. it looks... well it looks crazy lol
Jeffrey: I don't know Barenaked Ladies.. I will listen to this tune.
I learn a lot of new songs, teaching here! :|
That sounded execellent.. I think everyone would appreciate more acoustic chord progressions. Simple to pick up and fun to play! Makes for a nice distinction between what should be played on an acoustic and an electric.
I have a similar yamaha acoustic i just bought few months back (think its the same one it was like $200).
Im not really sure how to use my acoustic properly. I like this lesson a lot and there are some few other good acoustic lessons too (but theyre all finder picking to be played on a nylon string).
Could you come up with more lessons for steel string (using chords and single notes combined)?
jammer91: Sure! I will do acoustic lessons, using chords and single notes combined.
jammer91: all of the nylon lessons can be done on steel, nylons a bit easier for fingerpicking, but that shouldn't stop you.

Great lesson Jerry. Could u use more open chords next time?
sorry i was thinking about how many open chords there were, what i meant to say is can u add some singles next time
Hey Slash Jr,
thanks for your post.
So, do you mean single notes?
Check this out:
great job and fantastic lesson!!!
hey it would be nice to have it a little longer so you can have some examples of the strumming even slower...or just have the up down strumming written out...for us not so good players
Hi johsk, maybe this lesson
could help you to understand how strumming patterns work.
Great lesson Jerry. Open string chords sound so great.
I have a question according to the strumming, i thought its best to have your struming hand going all the time up and down and hitting the strings when needed so you have a steady up and down going. But you seem to break free from this structure at some places, why?
Hi Sentenced. Playing quarter notes - I think these are the "places" that you wrote - there's no need to keep the movement for playing sixteenth notes. At least, this works well for me at this speed. But if you want, you can move your hand up and down also for the longest notes, if you feel more comfortable.
Ah ok i see your point, thanks.
Thanks!!!! Great lesson.
Thanks for the comment mate
