Welcome to this Shrike Guitar Tutorial by Hozier! This is probably my favourite song form Hozier’s album Wasteland Baby and features some of the most beautiful fingerpicking riffs I’ve taught on GZ2H. Hozier’s and absolute musical genius and an incredibly underrated player. Similarly to Cherry Wine, this song is in 3/4 timing, however it does require retuning your guitar to Open C tuning in order to play it correctly.
This song is a bit of a challenge for newbies but I’d encourage fingerpickers to give it a shot anyway. Once you get it down, you’ll never want to stop playing it!
