For my first week of my 20% project I decided to gather all the things I need in order to learn my song. The first thing I tried to do was to get the chords for the song and for that I had to make a decision, do I learn the electric version or the acoustic version. I was leaning toward the electric version since I do own an electric guitar but I decided I can probably practice at more locations if I do the acoustic. So first challenge decided, acoustic version. After that I went online and got the chords but it has been so long since I have "played" guitar that it was close to reading Chinese for me. So with that in mind I turned turned to Youtube as the source of how I am going to learn this song. Below you can see the video that I chose to help me learn the song, I believe I got lucky because the first video seems to be fairly easy to follow, one never knows with Youtube. After looking at the video I realize I need a capo (sp?) for my guitar which I don't have but other than that I have everything to learn it. Lessons 1 I've had to view the youtube video many times because once again some of the information being given is like another language. I also realize that my fingers are really big, for once I wish I had smaller hands to be able to keep my fingers from bumping into each other. I will say that this video is awesome because the way the presenter teaches the song is very creative, he used the song to tell you which chords you need to be playing and he breaks down the lesson between the chords and the strumming.
