Alright you may know already that the open strings are E,A,D,G,B,e. But if you don't a good way to remember them is Every Adult Donkey Grows Big ears. The first letter of every word is the strings. You may have noticed that there are two E strings the top and bottom one. One is high and one is low but both are "E". The "Lead" pattern that I have provided for you is for messing around mostly but it is very fun. Start on the 5 fret and just do some stuff. You play on the 5 fret because on the "E" strings thats where "A" is and the lead pattern is in the key of "A". After you have experimented with that try moving dowon to the 12th fret on the "A" string this is also another "A". Now for the rythym section. Rythym is all about your playing pattern like for example you can do down up down up. Or up up up down down up. you can creat a whole knew song with the same chords and it will sound totally different. If you dont know any chords a nice and easy one to start with is "G"

G


Now what that is basically saying (i know its confusing) is that 3 fret on low e string 2 on a string open on d, g, and b and 3 fret on the high e string. So try strumming that like this down down up up down up down. And there you have it!

Thats it for now folks!!!! Thanks for reading!!!!!
