Today I'm playing my vintage 00 Martin guitar with steel strings. Feel free to use just about any guitar for this song! To modulation means to change from one harmonic key to another. In this case from the key of E Major to the key of F Major. The number system of naming chords with Roman numerals is especially useful when working with modulation.

The basic strum is an important technique that we'll use throughout this song. If you are not familiar with this strum, or you want some tips on how to play it better, check out my tutorial, "Better Strumming" here at Guitar Tricks.
