Picking up the pieces, of the wreck you went and left.

You can learn how to play Rewind!

It may not be fast but the strumming contains a lot of upstrokes. We could call this syncopated, should we want to use big words.

As this may take some time to get used to, a bunch of exercises are included among the song lessons when you take the full course.

We also create two 2nd guitar parts, one without a capo, meaning you play an open position Dsus2 for the first chord. For the 3rd guitar part, we play with a capo on fret 5 and think in the key of A.

Using a capo and changing the key like this is imperative in order to learn and understand the guitar and music in general. In the beginner course, we do this all the time so you get used to it.

Below you find step 3 from the course which looks at how to exactly strum each section of Rewind, for the complete experience, sign up here.



Rewind chords and strumming patterns

To play Rewind using the same strumming patterns as I do, you need to look at them all in detail and practice each section to a loop (the playlist above has practice loops).

Here’s the first TAB example, it’s of the verse. The second rhythm is not strummed, it’s hammered-on.

Notice how beats 1, 2+, and 4 are naturally accentuated.

Next, let’s work on the prechorus, or as some people like to call it, the bridge. I prefer the name example 2!

This section has super easy chords, although the rhythm is relatively complicated.

Rewind pre-chorus TAB

OK, let’s move on and work on that chorus. The chords are I – V – VI – IV, possibly the most common chord progression in modern hit songs.

Notice how the strumming pattern becomes repetitive halfway through bar two. Once firmly established in bar three during the Am, it doesn’t change.

Next, let’s work on the strumming for the middle 8.

The main thing to decide with this part is to do with the falling bass line over the VI chord. Do you use your thumb or not?

Finally, let’s take a look at the outro chorus, this follows the vocal melody. Looks like this.

Rewind – 8 Guitar Lessons

Rewind by Paolo Nutini may not be fast but the intricate 16th note strumming pattern will still require you to continue working on some strumming exercises.

After we’ve gone through each section using individual practice loops, we develop the song by writing not just one but two 2nd guitar parts.

Paolo Nutini

Paolo Nutini’s career started when an artist was late to perform at his school, Paolo was asked by the music teacher to go up and sing a song.

The reaction from the crowd to Paolo’s naturally stunning voice caught the attention of his (soon-to-be) manager who happened to be in the crowd.

This collection of songs will teach you how to arrange a song to play on your own, as well as how to create a supporting part.

Playing songs will help you with switching between open position chords and give you the context you need in order to understand how music works theoretically.

Song Book

As a guitarist, a repertoire is the greatest asset you can acquire. It is your ticket to playing with other musicians.

To help you on this journey, I’ve gathered tunes I play with acoustic duos, Jazz trios, Indie/Rock/Party bands as well as large Soul/Motown ensembles.
