Lyrics & Chords
In this lesson, you’ll learn to accent strums to give a song a bouncy rhythm, using the folk classic “If I Had a Hammer.” You’ll learn a new way to finger the basic C and F chords that will allow you to play a fun intro to the song that switches between the C and F chords quickly. You’ll also learn a quick-changing chord pattern (C, G, F, G) that you can use for most of the verse, along with an accented strum pattern:
C G F G
Down Down-Up, Down Down-Up, Down _ Up, _ Up Down
And Marcy gives you lots of time to practice this pattern along with her.
