Here's a simple, sweet, soulful song to brighten your day: "Ho Hey" by The Lumineers.
If it doesn't put a spring in your step, surely this will: An all-clucking version by Jimmy Fallon and his Chickeneers.
And if THAT didn't work, you must be upset that this simple, sweet, soulful song turns out to be not-so-simple to play. Here are a couple tips:
- When playing the main C-->F progression, mute the 1st string with the underside of your 1st finger. Not critical, but for whatever reason the guitarist decided he didn't want that string ringing.
- The C-->F and F-->C changes are quick, and will probably be a new movements for you. Try using my fabulous Chord Pushups technique to speed up the learning process.
