    Hi Andrew,

    I’m a little confused by the start of the I’m Yours lesson.

    Measure 1 – is the xxxx really different than a chunk? The difference seems to be using your index finger rather than the palm or the fleshy part of thumb to mute the strings but the effect is the same?

    Measure 2 – I guess the same question for the first xxxx but I really don’t know what to do for the single x — an up down chunk? The less one seems to skip right into the next slide and I’m not sure what to do for that.

    It seems like the rhythm is Mute (a) down up mute (?) slide – or mute/chunks mostly on Beats 1 and 3.

    Help!

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    Hi Jerry, check out this video and let me know if it helps clarify the above.

    “is the xxxx really different than a chunk?”

    No. But you could do muted strums if easier.

    “guess the same question for the first xxxx but I really don’t know what to do for the single x — an up down chunk? The less one seems to skip right into the next slide and I’m not sure what to do for that.”

    Chunk on the XXXX and do a muted up strum on the single X. Since I strum up with the nail of my thumb, I tend to only hit the A string, but you can hit all if muted.

    Let me know if this makes sense. I can clarify in a video tomorrow for you if needed 🙂
