Collide - Howie Day - Guitar Lesson

Hi, I decided to post this video lesson today because I'm joining a band, and we're doing this song, and this is a fun one to play. If you've seen my other videos, you'll see I use my classical guitar. This steel-string I'm using isn't a new one, it's about 4-5 years old, but I didn't use it until I bought new strings yesterday and I re-strung it all by myself (yay!). It's a Morales Hand-made guitar from the Philippines.

The link to where I got the chords is right here:

The strum pattern once again is:
Bass(hold) - down - up - up - down - down (repeat for all the chords)

You play all of them, when you strum. However, if you mean the bass
strings, they are as follows: G- Top "E" string, because that note (E
string- 3rd fret) is a G. D- Top "E" string also (the actual name for the
chord is D/F#, and 2nd fret of the E Em- Top "E" string Cadd9- A string,
second from the top. Hope this helps! -SirDarkvain

Author SirDarkvain (4 years)
I mention it during the video, but it's called a capo. Basically, it's a
clip the holds down the strings, as if you were barring that fret. To play
this song in the same key as Howie Day's studio recording, it needs to be
placed on the fourth fret of the guitar, raising the key two steps (four
half-steps). Hope this helps, SirDarkvain

Author Thor Strolia-Davis (1 year)
i would suggest you go buy one. you can always bar the chords, but it will
not sound the same and the hammer ons will be harder. if you dont have a
local music store you can go to buy one at, than you can make one. people
have been known to use a BIC pen and 1 or 2 rubber bands to hold it to the
neck, but its not very effective this way. Every serious guitar player
should keep at least 1 capo in their arsenal.

Author saraaly (4 years)
ok Thanks alot ; ) you play it perfectly by the way and i really love this

Author mrdave22 (1 year)
good tutorial. thanks for posting.

Author SirDarkvain (4 years)
@melissaflynn01 The bass note is generally the lowest note in the chord,
for a G chord, it's a G note (3rd fret of the low E string). For a D chord
its the open D string (since you don't play any lower note) or for a C
chord, its a C note (3rd fret of the A string) So in response to your
question, it's not always the low E string, but varies depending on the

Author SirDarkvain (5 years)
The strum pattern once again is: Bass(hold) - down - up - up - down - down
(repeat for all the chords) And as for the Cadd9, you have to listen for
the timing of the trill, its kinda hard to explain, but if you understand
the beat, its on the third count.
