Lesson notes

The Joke is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile and appears on her 6th studio album ‘By The Way, I Forgive You’ (2017).

It was nominated in four categories at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards (2019) and won the Award for ‘Best American Roots Song & Best American Roots Performance.

The arrangement features an easy progression, with only five chords, including a few barre chords, making it not too easy for beginners.

The lesson takes a thorough look at the strumming and shows a few examples of the way Brandi strums through it.
