Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members Tracy Chapman’s second hit from her debut album, Talkin’ ‘Bout A Revolution is a great song for beginners in that there are only four easy chords and it can be done with our standard folk strum. This short lesson is done in two parts where the second part adds a couple of embellishments that Tracy uses to give it more character, as well as making it a bit more difficult. These include adding a ‘double time bounce’ to the strumming, as well as a little melodic movement on the D chord.

Very good lesson Neil. Is there any chance you could make another video explaining the best way to go about trying to sing and play the song? This is probably the most difficult song I have encountered when it comes to singing and playing.written by blackheathen, September 12, 2015
