  1. Hi Lauren! I watch a lot of your videos and I have a question that's been driving me crazy regarding fingerpicking. Some of the chord shapes we're doing, for example, the Em7 and the D/F# require that the first string (is that right? high e) be held down by the fourth finger, but we don't actually pluck that string, so are we just following the correct form for the sake of consistency or does it matter? I find this happens hall the time when watching videos for fingerpicking songs where I'm told to hold certain chord shapes but maybe only one of the strings involved is plucked. Do you follow my meaning?

  2. I really like your teaching style and appreciate your enthusiasm and warmth. I've seen a lot of your lessons and until this one, (maybe I just wasn't paying attention?) hadn't realised what a good voice you have.Without the camera, it could be Stevie Nicks doing this song at home. Flattery will get you….well, up to you! Thank you Lauren.

  3. Very interesting placement for a capo 🤔 you would think if you don't play with your fingers directly on top of the fret, you wouldn't place the capo there either

  4. Lauren, thank you sincerely for this lesson. But, I have a question about the G/B that you are using in this piece. The G/B chord that I was shown has a minor change to what you show. In mine, the only change that I make is, rather than putting my pinky on the third fret of the second string, I place it on the third fret of the first string. Your chord has the notes B D G & D. The one that I was shown has the notes B D G B & G. Am I incorrect? I would just like your help.

  5. Thanks so much for this. After annoying my wife with the same pattern on the C chord I got it.
    Also how do you like the Crafters guitar you’re playing, action, finish, frets? I know the aren’t expensive but they look pretty nice.

  6. On the G/B chord, it seems easier to use the third finger to third fret rather than the fourth finger (the fourth gives me loads of trouble). Great teaching style BTW. I'm wondering if you have a subscription plan for the full lesson package?

  7. I'm not there yet as a beginner, but this type of lesson keeps me going. This song is a solid goal. So happy we have you teaching us Lauren. Cheers

  8. Thanks Lauren! I have a question for you. With the D7 you said it’s 6 string cord. Correct? But you said playing the 5 and 6 string with the thumb? Or is it the 6 and 4 string? Thank you

  9. Thanks for the Vid! I play this song and love it! Please note this is in the key of Eb, so it's not a "C maj" chord but a Eb maj chord. You're not hearing a C, Am, G, etc. so best to think of it in Eb as it is played and heard. This is important when playing at a jam session and people want to join with instruments that don't use capos.

  10. Not only is she a great teacher but she never ages….How does she do that? Does playing guitar keep you young? Well it just might be true…

  11. I like to see instructors actually play some of song first before they start teaching it so viewers know they can actually play it like the original recording. Sorry but for this reason, I’m out on this instructor although she is probably very competent.
