‘Everybody Hurts’ – Free Guitar Lesson

WHAT’S INVOLVED IN THE LESSON

This lesson is covering the main parts of the classic REM tune ‘Everybody Hurts’. This song is a great introduction to playing arpeggios. For beginners to the guitar this is a real challenge as the chords need to sound extremely clear, and you have a lot more to deal with when it comes to your picking hand! In this video we will go through the verse and chorus of the song including the main arpeggio elements.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL

I would pitch this as a beginners song, but a slightly higher level beginner (i.e. someone who has a good grasp of open chords and rhythm). The challenge will be the accuracy with the right hand, as well as understanding a new 6/8 time signature!
