series is expertly taught by Neil Hogan teaching you some of the best guitar songs of the 2000's.

1) James Blunt - Same Mistake 2007

Same Mistake was the second single released from James Blunt's album All The Lost Souls. The video featured a very unusual camera technique and the song features a rapid arpeggio accompaniment, as well as some strumming. The original was done with a capo at the 3rd fret, and although the lesson is done without it, some of the uses of a capo are discussed. Level 5


2) Jason Mraz - I'm Yours 2008

I'm Yours is a very catchy tune by Jason Mraz that uses a heavily rhythmic and percussive strumming technique with a lot of barre chords, including one outside of the normal 'A' and 'E' families. Level 5.


3) John Mayer - Why Georgia 2003

John Mayer's Why Georgia is one of the more difficult songs we have here at TotallyGuitars. This song uses very elaborate, percussive picking, as well as a somewhat difficult filler lick over a relatively uncomfortable and unusual chord, and that's just the first 2 measures. The rest of the song gets easier, a little, but don't let that scare you off! Level 8


4) Dave Matthews - Where Are You Going 2002

Another great strumming song from Dave Matthews, Where Are You Going appeared on the Dave Matthews Band album Busted Stuff in 2002. It uses some of his typical extended chords, ones with notes outside the normal major, minor and seventh combinations, is strummed with a basic pattern hitting bass notes on beat one. The lesson presents the chords in tab and generally addresses the strumming without getting too specific. Level 5


5) Pearl Jam - Just Breathe 2009

Really a solo guitar song by Eddie Vedder, Just Breathe is a fingerpicking tune much like Dust In The Wind or Blackbird. One of the similarities is that the picking is easy but very fast. This was released in October 2009 on the Pearl Jam album Backspacer. Level 4


6) Ray LaMontagne - Beg Steal Or Borrow 2010

Ray LaMontagne recently hit the current scene with a throwback sound and look, along with some great songs. Beg Steal Or Borrow is pretty much a folky campfire song that just uses a steady strumming pattern over mostly open chords. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award in the US for 2010. Level 3


7) Tom Petty - I Should Have Known It 2010

This Lesson has an interesting history. Neil was very surprised and impressed with this recent Tom Petty song, I Should Have Known It, and also ran across a teaching competition going on at Ovation Guitars. He put together a short lesson on the song and entered the contest with it. For some unknown reason Ovation chose not to publish the entry but we are bringing it out for our members. Neil's lesson combines a couple of guitar parts into one that is done in a G6 tuning, lowering the 5th and 6th strings 1 step. It is a great example of a solid riff-based tune framed in a modified 12-bar blues format. Level 5


8) Train - Hey Soul Sister 2009

With the lesson on Hey, Soul Sister, we take a look at another very catchy song that is part of the current music scene. Lead singer Pat Monahan said they were trying to write something in the style of INXS but as it evolved he was not happy with the sound. Maybe it was because it followed the classic 'Pachelbel Progression', I-V-vi-IV, also found in songs like Let It Be, With Or Without You, and Jason Mraz's I'm Yours, to mention a few of the thousands in this category. In any case, once band mate Espen Lind strummed it on the ukulele, he was convinced that they had found the right recipe. In this short lesson we look at chord voicings that sound much like the ukulele. Level 5


9) Incubus - Drive 2001

Drive is probably Incubus's biggest hit and released in late 2000 on their album Make Yourself. It is really just a solo acoustic accompaniment to a very melodic tune that uses a few unusual chord shapes. It also features some syncopated changes making the strumming a bit challenging as well. Level 4


10) Guster - Do You Love Me? 2010

Guster is another band that has been putting out some catchy tunes over the last decade, most of which could be considered Campfire Songs and feature acoustic guitars using simple strumming patterns. Their 2010 album Easy Wonderful included Do You Love Me, a great example of their up-beat pop sound. This lesson is done in a 'Work It Out' format, where the first few video segments focus on ear training and figuring out the chord progression yourself. If you decide to try this approach, I recommend not looking at the chart until you have gone through ear training segments. The entire song is taught completely and in the usual manner in the last segment. Level 3
