‘Fake Plastic Trees’ – Guitar Lesson

WHAT’S INVOLVED IN THE LESSON

This is one my favourite all time songs, so it is a pleasure to teach it to you today! The song includes a lot of open chord shapes that you will know and love, as well as one or two you may be less familiar with. In this lesson I walk you through the structure of the chords, and we also have a quick look at the key parts to the rhythm. This is a perfect song to sing along to as soon as you have the chord changes correct, so get that guitar out and get strumming!

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 patterns). The challenge will be keeping the rhythm steady and making sure the chord changes are seamless! The whole song relies very heavily on dynamics as well, hence why it will challenge most beginners.
