I Will Wait – Mumford & Sons – Guitar Lesson (Eric H)

UPDATE 122412: Added new annotations showing the main strumming pattern and chord progressions throughout the song. Hope that they are helpful! ~Eric The new Mumford and Sons single I Will Wait broken down. The tuning is open C# as heard on their new album Babel. This is my first lesson.

    The pattern is down down up down up, Repeat

    Strum Pattern:

    1_2_3 x_4 x_5_6 x_7

    v_v_ʌ v_ʌ v_ v_ʌ v_ ʌ Repeat

    Listen to the recording and try not to think about each stroke. Think about getting your hand moving constantly in that rhythm, then work on only hitting the strings when you want to in the pattern. My 2 cents.
