Train “Hey, Soul Sister” Easy Guitar Lesson

FavoriteLoadingBookmark this Lesson.


In this video guitar lesson you will learn how to play every part of Train's smash hit "Hey, Soul Sister" in less than ten minutes.

Every thing is here from the ukulele parts, to the full guitar parts.

This song should be approachable by just about any guitarist, and it is a great song to know.

No TAB needed for this one since it is just a few basic chord shapes. Just watch it over and over until you get it memorized then try and play along with the original recording.

Have Fun!! Carl..

    So incredibly helpful! You do a wonderful job of explaining fret, string and finger position but personally I still have a diffult job looking from my angle at your hand and locating the proper placement and finger arrangement on my guitar. I guess it’s just me and the way my brain works? Some others have used an additional visual tool..it looks like the neck of the guitar; with strings and then adds dots to show where to place your fingers. They show this next to their actual hand formation too. For some reason, to me, this is a bit more clear than seeing someones actual hand as sometimes a finger may not be actually pressing on a string but visually it’s difficult to disern that. I know you explain it very clearly verbally but still this tool has helped me incredicbly and I thought I may mention it to you. Thank you so much for sharing your skills and knowledge! Also, do you offer this version with the same chords as a printable download so that I may practice the chords hand shape over and over again. Thanks a million for taking the time to share.

    Hey Carl, love to get into songs so quickly. I would like to make one request and that is that you just slow down just a touch when describing how to make the chords. I know I can replay to get it but would help if you might step it down a notch. Thanks
