In this lesson, we'll take an overview of the song, 'I Got a Name', by Jim Croce.

This song features two distinct acoustic guitar versions. One is a strumming version, and the other is fingerstyle.

Both versions move through a progression of major and minor barre chords at quite a clip.

Because they move so fast, I thought we'd take a moment to review the underlying sensibilities behind major and minor barre chords. This should make it a little easier for you to keep up once we bring the song up to speed.
