and welcome to another by request song tutorial! In today’s session I’ll be breaking down a fairly easy guitar tune in Bill Withers’ 1972 classic “Lean On Me.” This song only uses four basic chords, but does feature some challenging rhythmic elements. Here’s a few tips for getting the main section of this tune down:
1) Using the Patreon tablature, practice the chord changes and walking transitions first, without the optional strums.
2) Once you’re comfortable with the changes and transitions, move on to adding my option strums, or experiment with creating your own rhythmic embellishments.
3) Once you’re able to flow through the tune by feel, practice counting and tapping your foot. You’re likely to find this tricky, as some chord changes are falling on the forth beat.
4) Use the YouTube slowdown feature (click the gear in the lower right corner of the video) and jam along with the original track at 3/4 speed until proficient.
