Tutorial Tuesday: Learn How To Play ‘Crash (Into Me)’ by Dave Matthews Band on Guitar (Lesson Video)
Last week we got back to rock with Back in Black by AC/DC. But it can’t be all rock all the time… sometimes you need to learn how to play beginner guitar songs with more difficulty, especially those that have depth.
Take Dave Matthews Band’s ‘Crash (Into Me)’ as an example. This isn’t really a beginner song, because the chords are somewhat advanced, but there’s not a lot of hand movement. The struggle is in building up the muscle strength to hold down your pinky and ring fingers in the same place for a 5 minute song, while simultaneously switching bass notes with your pointer finger and middle finger, which is ultimately changing chords.
It will take some time for you to be able to hold these chords with your fretting hand, but once you develop the strength, you’ll see that this song is fun and easy to play.

Don’t get discouraged, simply take it slow and rest your hand whenever necessary!
