If you’ve ever seen True Detective, you’ll recognise this gothic Americana song.

It’s a great one to strum along with, especially on acoustic guitar.

Use a pick, and strum the second beat (shown with the arrows) as a “brush strum”. Brush strum is a technical term for dragging the pick across the strings, a little slower than you would for a normal strum.

Take note of the strum directions, too (the V sign is Up).

If you can’t play the F chord yet, you could always use an Fmaj7 instead, which doesn’t use a barred finger.

Practice & enjoy!
