In this lesson, we'll learn "Man of Constant Sorrow" made popular by The Soggy Bottom Boys.
For this lesson, we'll be using 3 chords: E, A2, and B. I'll be throwing in some extra things to add some quality to the song. The G bass note & a hammer on the E chord. Keep in mind you can play the song without these frills.
The song is in 4/4 time (4 beats per measure). The strum pattern will be broken up as follows:
D / D / DU / DU
The first 2 beats will be only down strums. The second two beats will be down and up strums. Emphasis will be added on the 2nd and 4th beats.
