you you hey what's up everyone this is Ben's in for epic guitar instruction thank you so much for checking out the video today gonna do a video lesson on the rain song by Led Zeppelin such a great tune but we're going to put our own little twist on it today we're going to do it in standard tuning as opposed to the alternate tuning that it was recorded and usually performed in so this is a lot of fun learning a tune like this and standard tuning has a couple advantages
01:24
it allows us to take the chords and ideas riffs and licks that we're learning and apply them to other situations new chord voicings new ideas all of this stuff then can be used in the tuning that we spend most of our time in so what happens as a result we may not see that everything sounds exactly 100% like the original but we can get pretty darn close so we'll take you through most of the main sections today let's jump right in and check them out so the song is going to find us opening on a g5 chord which
01:57
I'm going to voice like this and as I'm playing this chord I want a deadened string v with my second finger so in other words I'm just kind of lightly resting that over the 5th string so that I don't hear any sound coming off of that and I'm going to open up by backwards strumming so from the first string I'm going to sort of gently just bring my pick back so we can let the pick kind of bounce on the strings as we as we start out the song
02:29
here okay our second chord we're going to use the same technique but we're going to go to a G major 7 shape here which is just going to find me bring my first finger to the second fret and same idea that kind of backwards strumming motion and we can kind of fill in between the main highlight of the song is to hit each of those chords with that backward motion but you can kind of lightly strum in between
03:07
and now we'll hit the bottom string for emphasis before we move on to our next idea here so our next little piece again we're adapting this from the alternate tuned original but we can get pretty close to this lick here fourth fret and sixth fret of strings three and two I'm going to slide into those now I'm going to come to double fourth frets fourth fret and third fret and then
03:46
finally ending up on a three note chord here which would be the fifth fret third fret and 4th fret this kind of spells out an e-flat chord so that's section okay now we're going to return to our G idea with another little twist here so there I'm striking the low third string and I have my ring finger pre fretting the second string here my first finger is free to do a little sus2 on the G chord
04:31
so there's a great example of how learning this in our standard tuning will open some new doors for other ideas there we have a nice little voicing for a Jesus - that you can use when you're jamming right in your own song whatever the case may be it's good sounding chord I like it okay as you're noticing this tune is in the key of G and this is a great tune to jam with a friend if you guys want to take this thing and riff off on it a little bit and you know do some soloing we want to help you out with that we
05:05
want to show you some scales that will work over the top of this major scales diagrammed all across the neck modes that you could use for this pen Atomics all the good stuff you'd want to get going in jamming and doing your own thing with it so if you want that just click on the link that you see below it will send you all that information all diagrammed out and further enhance what you're working on all of that good stuff and we're going to send you a free video lesson it's all for free all you got to
05:35
do is click on the link moving on we're going to move up the neck and play some higher chord voicings I'm going to take this D shape up here and start it at the seventh fret making it a G chord so this top three strings that old familiar D shape and now I'm going to come back here and this is going to be seventh fret fifth fret and fifth fret back to the
06:08
original D shape but let's do the old sus4 move where we add the pinky and then return to the original shape so this section recapping once again first four shapes now we're going to do this little move here where I'm holding down the seventh fret of the third string and the fifth fret of the second string I'm going to play these two notes together and then I'm going to slide them up to the tenth
06:45
fret and finally I'm going to add my pinkie to the 13th fret here now all I did was hammer on there I didn't actually pick the string it's a pretty dissonant chord and so I wanted to kind of soften the blow a little bit of hearing that chord by just sneaking that note in there okay so our whole upper register chords one more time
07:26
you'll do that twice and now we'll move into another great new chord shape that we learn from this song in standard tuning we have this g sharp 9 sliding into a G 9 now in the alternate tuning that's a lot easier to do because this is a funky chord shape here but that's what's great about this we have a brand new chord that we can add to our vocab that court sounds expensive yes it does
08:14
cachinga so we get this great sound of our G sharp 9 sliding down to the g9 into a G mine or not okay so our G minor 9 we can think about that it's just a G 9 bar chord here excuse me we can think about that as a G minor bar chord here adding the 9 up here with the pinkie and now we're going to go into the series of moves here basically what you're going to want to start out here is with AC chord anchoring all three of
09:07
these fingers here so we have our pinkie our middle finger and our first finger anchoring at the second fret here the first fret here that second string and then pinkie riding the wave here at the top on the first string third fret so all those fingers will stay put and our third finger will be our over finger here and we'll kind of move around a little bit within this shape starting at the third fret all the while
09:37
my middle finger is ready to press down on the second fret when I lift off and then my third finger completes a c-major chord there I grab the root of the chord so I'm just kind of moving the root note around of this shape now depending on where you're at in the song oftentimes it will repeat back to this sliding 9th chord back to the minor nine and then repeat let's go again
10:29
if you want our kg8 in between these hits that's that's all gravy lots of overdubs on the tune you know strings happening all sorts of good gooey goodness so you can duplicate that by just kind of filling in some of these chord shapes by picking within doing a little bit strumming however you feel now after this Oh we have a little bit of single note play that we'll be doing here so what we're going to do here so I'll start out by holding down the a note at
11:19
the second fret of the third string and I'm going to play that together with my fourth string open so a little two note chord to start the run now I'll hit the second string open twice now here is the quick succession of notes that we see in this run 2nd fret 3rd string 2nd string open third string open back to the 2nd fret 1st
11:49
fret of the 4th string third string open 4th string open let's tie that all together that's the thing to get down you're going to want to alternate pick that once you have that the rest of the lick will come together pretty easily let's back up for a moment so we have the two note idea to start second string open twice then our run okay now we're basically going to repeat that idea and just make some tweaks
12:28
second time we're going to start with a two node idea that looks like this first fret on the fourth string second fret on the third string we'll play those two together and then play the exact same stuff we just did so exact same rundown now third time through we're going to start with this two node idea second fret at the fourth string and we're going to do the exact same run down with one alteration instead of
13:04
playing the first fret fourth string I'm going to go up to the second fret let's break down that third time through once more okay and then finally we're just moving up in half steps here as you can see we're going to end up on the third fret fourth string we're going to play these two notes together this time we'll close out with a different tale simpler but that's just first string open third fret second string open
13:42
second string open third string whoo that is a handful let's try that all together now nice slow tempo just starting from that single note idea so once again we're back here for a string open 2nd fret here it is all together Hey and final piece that we'll take a look at here it's going to find us doing some nice jazzy chord shapes here in standard tuning starting with a c major seven voicing and once again after I highlight that by
14:37
strumming I can kind of fill in with some more Peggy aiding - a B minor 7 now to an a7 sus4 now let's do a little lick after we play the a 7sus4 we're going to slide from the third fret hammer on pull off from the third fret so we started here we strummed and now we're going to walk down with a bar so that was fifth fret third string fourth string and then third fret here on the fifth string
15:32
so I'll do that lik twice now this completes our cycle we're going to end up here with this G sus 2 from before and at this point that whole cord cycle will start over so you're back at the beginning now going through all these sections here you okay everyone that's it for our lesson on the rain song adapted for standard tuning I hope you guys have fun with it it's one of my favorite Zeppelin tunes such a great mellow tune in their catalogue among so many great tunes so
