Hi everybody, it's Caren from Guitar Tricks, and in these lessons I'll be teaching you "Speed of the Sound of Loneliness", written by singer-songwriter John Prine in 1986.

I love the lyrics to this song and like it for beginners because it is one simple chord progression and strum pattern repeated throughout.

I'll be playing my vintage OO Martin guitar, with steel strings. I'll be working with my fingers to strum, but don't let that stop you flat pickers from joining us. Grab whatever guitar you have and we'll have you up and playing by the end of this tutorial!

This song is in 4/4 time, in the key of G and is played at XXX beats per minute.
