In this guitar lesson we’re going to learn Just Breathe by Pearl Jam.

It’s a fast Travis fingerpicked song that will take regular practice to get up to speed.

The chords use embellishments of common open shapes, like C and G.

To achieve the right speed start of by playing the song slowly (but accurately). If there’s any mistakes in what you’re doing slwoly, they will only be amplified when you speed things up. Once you can do this increase your speed by 10 BPM and keep doing this until you’re at breaking point (where you can barely keep the timing together), then back the speed off.

The end result of this is that the speed where you started will much easier, because you’ve pushed yourself. Keep doing this until you reach 140 BPM
