Tutorial Steps

Intro & Basic Info

Hey there! In this tutorial, we’ll be learning how to play the song “Little Life” by Cordelia. This song has a beautiful and soothing sound, and it’s perfect for beginner guitar players. We’ll cover all the chords, the strumming pattern, and even a play-along example. So grab your guitar, tune it to standard tuning, and let’s get started!

How To Play Chords

To play the chords for “Little Life,” we’ll be using three chord shapes: Cmaj7, G6, and Am7. I’ve already explained how to play each chord in the previous section, so refer back to that if you need a refresher. Take your time to practice transitioning between the chords until you feel comfortable and confident.

Practice Transitions

Transitioning smoothly between chords is an essential skill for any guitarist. Start by practicing the transition from Cmaj7 to G6. Strum each chord once and focus on moving your fingers quickly and accurately. Once you can do this comfortably, move on to practicing the transition from G6 to Am7. Remember to take it slow and be patient with yourself. With practice, these chord transitions will become second nature.

Strumming Pattern

Now that you’re comfortable with the chord transitions, it’s time to add the strumming pattern to the mix. The strumming pattern for “Little Life” is duu duu ddu. It may take some time to get the rhythm right, so start by strumming slowly and gradually increase your speed. Focus on maintaining a steady rhythm and keeping your strokes consistent.

Play-Along Example

To help you get a feel for how the chords and strumming pattern come together, I’ll play a short example of “Little Life” for you. I’ll start with the Cmaj7 chord, then transition to G6, and finally to Am7. I’ll be using the strumming pattern we discussed earlier. Feel free to play along with me and practice keeping up with the rhythm.

Thumb vs. Pick

In the tutorial, I played the strumming pattern using my thumb, but you can also use a guitar pick if you prefer. Using your thumb can give the strumming a softer and more muted sound, which complements the gentle nature of the song. Experiment with both techniques and choose whichever feels most comfortable to you.
