Starting Over was the first song released from John Lennon’s Double Fantasy album in 1980. It was a great commentary on what he had been doing for the last five years, as well as a bit of an answer to some of his critics. The song has a bit of a 50s feel with a shuffle rhythm and some Do-Wop type harmonies. The lesson goes into a range of strumming approaches from very basic to pretty complicated. It gets to styles of strumming where your hand does not keep a steady down-up motion.
