Lesson notes

Man! I Feel Like A Woman! is a song recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Shania Twain, taken from her best selling 3rd studio album ‘Come On Over’ (1997). It won a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 2000.

This lesson takes a thorough look at the main heavily syncopated intro riff, which re-appears several times throughout the arrangement.

It covers the chords in the key of A, where the guitar is capoed on the 1st fret, and the strumming with swing feel.

The progression is less straightforward as it seems. For example, the chorus ends differently each time, including a time signature change.

There are a lot of syncopated chord changes, usually at the ‘and of beat 4’, throughout the song and a good sense of rhythm is a must.

Other techniques involved are muting the strings with the fretting hand and bending a few bass notes in the verses.

There is a segment in which I encourage anyone, who wants to play a song from beginning to end, to create their own charts.
