This Version of Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain Will Cheer You UP
Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain WITH A Guitar Lesson Video
This arrangement of Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain comes with both free fingerstyle guitar tablature and a guitar lesson video.
It uses chords that you probably already know. The chord shapes that are used are C, G and F.
The song uses a steady alternating bass all the way through. I suggest that you grab the chord forms that you're familiar with
and work out of them.
For example, in measure 1 play a regular C chord at the 1st fret. For the F note (1st string, 1st fret) at the end of measure 1, just reach up and play it with the 1st finger of your fretting hand. Keep holding the C chord. You're going to need it in measure 2.
On the 3rd beat of measure 5 play a 1st position G chord. Don't play the 1st string 3rd fret. Instead play the 2nd string 3rd fret. Grab the G chord, but put your finger on the 2nd string instead of the 1st.
In measure 17 you will be playing a F chord at the 5th fret. Play the C chord shape with fingers 2, 3, and 4. With your 1st
finger bar across strings 1-3.
In the middle of measure 21 it does get a little tricky. Here's how I approached it.
Play a barre chord with your first finger at the 3rd fret. Put your finger across strings 1-5.
Now place the 3rd finger of your fretting hand across strings 2-4. Don'tlet your 3rd finger cover the 1st string. Now you can play the A on the 5th fret of the 1st string in measure 22.
Making your fingers do things like what I describe above can be learned. The trick is to make sure that first, your hands are
warmed up. If you don't give up on it, one day you'll find that you can do it.
