Sit Down - James

In this acoustic guitar lesson series we're going to learn to play TEN beginner guitar songs with three very common guitar chords; A major, D major and G major.

This lesson shows you how to play the 90s classic 'Sit Down' by the band James. This is probably the easiest and most repetitive song in this series, so a great starting point if you are new to these chords. We also cover a new strumming pattern called 'swing' strumming. This is where the off beats are pushed a little later, creating a bounce effect in the rhythm.

If you find you struggle for any reason, then head back to the first video for more work on the chords themselves, or check out an easier section of songs on the website or channel!
