What I Like About You
♦ Review finger positions for the E, A and D chords
♦ Practice chord changes using the palm muting technique
♦ Play the full chord progression smoothly and in tempo
To play this song we only need the use of the E chord, A chord and D chord.
Because the right hand strumming technique involves taking the palm muting from the last lesson to a new level, we have included the following TAB to demonstrate.
The first down stroke is on the chord itself
(E, A or D) and the second two strokes (indicated with “X’s”) are the quick down then up muted strokes.
Here is the chart for the abbreviated version of “What I Like About You”. Other than a short musical bridge, the rest of the song pretty much repeats itself.
You will want to work on the muted strumming pattern and also play around with some strumming ideas of your own.
