ACOUSTIC VERSION CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to Throwback Thursday’s where I teach you a classic hit from the last 4-5 decades! This week, by request, I’ll be covering a Decode Guitar Tutorial from Paramore. For this particular lesson i’ll be running through 2 different versions of playing this song. 1. The acoustic version (Capo on 1st standard tuning) 2. The electric full band version (Drop D tuning) I’ll also be showing you how to play all the lead parts of this song which are super simple but fun! At the end of the video i’ll be playing through the entirety of #decode with a vocal track on top for you to play along to.

My awesome friend Clancy has provided the vocals with her amazing voice be sure to check out her channel and subscribe: CLANCY’S CHANNEL – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzZh… Enjoy! Like this #decode video by #paramore and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!
