Lesson notes

Tracy Chapman’s second hit from her debut album, Talkin’ ‘Bout A Revolution is a great song for beginners in that there are only four easy chords and it can be done with our standard folk strum. This short lesson is done in two parts where the second part adds a couple of embellishments that Tracy uses to give it more character, as well as making it a bit more difficult. These include adding a ‘double time bounce’ to the strumming, as well as a little melodic movement on the D chord.
