Lesson notes

‘Forgiven, Not Forgotten’ is the 2nd single by Irish band The Corrs, taken from their debut album (1996) with the same name.

This lesson is entirely based on how Jim plays it on guitar in a few acoustic settings. (A performance in 1995 EPK, and The Late Late Show, 2015 )

We take a look at the chords and shapes he uses, which are relatively really easy. The same applies for the chord progression.

The main focus of this lesson is the strumming in double time. We break down several ways of doing that in really great depth.

Anyone who considers double time strumming, and/or syncopated chord changes, with its many variations challenging, will benefit greatly from this lesson. I hope that many of you can take it away and carry it over into other songs.
