A Change Is Gonna Come – Verse
Today we start learning A Change Is Gonna Come in the key of G.
We use a capo to get to the key of A, worth mentioning is that the original key is Bb. To get to that key, move the capo up one fret.
There are two TAB loop videos to practice along with.
You’ll find lots and lots of details in both examples. Look for guidance in the first video lesson and then aim to get it exactly like the TAB loop.
Perhaps the most difficult part is to read this in 12/8.
When you can play what the TAB says to a reasonable standard, try example 2 as well.
In some ways, example 2 is even more complicated. However, because you played example 1, it may feel easier.
Overall, these two examples are by far the most difficult in these 8 steps of learning the song.
Should you really struggle after giving it a good fifteen minutes of practice of each example, move on anyway.
Resting and playing the m8 and intro will make playing the verse easier.
Next time, we take a look at that m8, it is indeed much easier to conquer.
See you then!
