Shania Twain Acoustic Guitar 5 Pack
Shania Twain hails from Canada as the best-selling female artist in country music history.
The country singer/songwriter has sold over 100 million records and garnered five Grammy Awards. She also co-wrote "Don’t Let Me Be the Last to Know” which appeared on Britney Spears’ record Oops! I Did It Again.
Her success has garnered her several titles including the “Queen of Country Pop.”
The lessons in this power pop pack and done by Vanessa and include many of her most popular tunes, like You're Still The One and Man! I Feel Like A Woman!
Lesson 1: Forever And For Always
Forever And For Always is another beautiful love song co-written and recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Shania Twain, and one of her own personal favorites. It’s taken from her 4th studio album ‘Up’ (2002) and was the 3rd single to be released, which earned her two Grammy Award nominations.
This lesson teaches a Travis style fingerpicking arrangement in the key of D, and uses Dropped D-tuning.
The challenge is to transition smoothly from one chord to the next and to keep the alternating bass notes going.
Of course one could strum the song, so we take a quick look at that too. The same applies for playing it in standard tuning, which should be easy enough for anyone to adapt to.
Lesson 2: You've Got A Way - Shania Twain - Guitar Lesson
You’ve Got A Way is a beautiful love song by Canadian singer-songwriter Shania Twain. It was the 8th country single from her best selling album ‘Come On Over’ and was nominated for ‘Song Of The Year’ at the 42nd Grammy Awards.
The arrangement is done in the key of G, where the guitar is capoed on the 2nd fret, and is relatively easy to play.
It features open basic chords only, including several inversions. We take a look at a few different ways to finger them, the double time strumming, and the progression.
The lesson also shows how to play the little fill in the intro, which re-appears a few times throughout the song.
Lesson 3: Man! I Feel Like A Woman! - Shania Twain - Guitar Lesson
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.
Lesson 4: You’re Still The One - Shania Twain - Guitar Lesson
Shania Twain is a multi Grammy Award winning Canadian singer-songwriter and the best-selling female artist in the history of country music.
You’re Still The One, released in 1998, is taken from her immensely successful third studio album ‘Come On Over’.
It features a relatively easy progression, using only four chords in the key of D, where the guitar is capoed on the first fret.
We take a look at a few ways to finger the chords and the double time strumming, including how to find the main feel for the latter.
The lesson also shows how to copy the synthesizer fill in the intro, which is relatively easy to incorporate. It does require the ability to pick out individual strings.
Lesson 5: No One Needs To Know
No One Needs To Know is a fun and uplifting song co-written and recorded by singer-songwriter Shania Twain. It’s taken from her ‘The Woman In Me’-album (1995) and became her third consecutive number-one hit on country radio, and fourth overall.
The arrangement is in the key of C, and moves up a whole step to the key of D later in the song.
We take a look at the chords, the strumming, and how to mute the strings on beats 2 and 4 with the fretting hand.
