DVD Introduction – In this introduction Jennifer describes the background of the song, discusses the lesson format, and the structure for the coming song lessons. She also discusses the equipment and sounds used.
Chord Library – Here you will learn all the chords used in the song. Jennifer takes you through the each of the chord fingerings with a close-up camera shot of the neck. She shows where to place your fingers and how to hold your hand to get the best sound out of the chord.
Main Chord Progression - In addition to learning the chords for the song, you will learn what order to play the chords in. Jennifer also shows the easiest, most efficient way to get from one chord to the next.
Video Jam Track - After you have learned the main chord progression, play along with Jennifer as she slowly goes through the chords one-by-one. This section is provided to give you the opportunity to practice what you have learned at a slow, steady tempo.
Arpeggiated Picking Patterns - In this section you will learn to play two basic rhythms for the song. Jennifer teaches a simple picking pattern and then shows a slightly more advanced picking pattern, both broken down slowly and demonstrated with a tight shot of the bridge. As you go through the chord progression, Jennifer will show you which strings to pick for each chord so you can easily learn the pattern.
Song Outro - In this section you will learn the simple chord progression that ends the song. It is taught in the same manner as the Main Chord Progression section.
Acoustic Finger-picking - In this section Jennifer plays the previously demonstrated chord progression on an acoustic guitar. She shows how you can play the picking pattern for the song without a guitar pick, using a simple finger-picking technique. This is a good and simple exercise to develop your right hand and introduce you to finger-picking. The technique is shown with a tight shot on the bridge position and Jennifer tells you which strings to pluck and which fingers to use.
