Time to Strum

Strumming is a good thing to work on after you have learned chords and the fingering is secured. For better results, switch to the “Practice” mode on the app. One important thing to know is that strumming patterns can vary within songs. Although a strumming pattern may vary for various reasons, the one provided with the Roadie Coach app fits perfectly.

After you play the song, the app will also give you valuable feedback centered around your strumming. 

As it is customary, you will get notified on the chords that you did not do well. This is great so you can focus on them, before moving forward. Roadie Coach will also provide you with an overall score at the end of your strumming practice and point out which aspects you need to improve.

Performing the song

By now you have individually worked on chords and the strumming, solving any problems along the way. The time has come to put both together and perform “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” in its entirety. 

However, you can go slow at first. Roadie Coach has a feature that allows you to adjust the tempo. This way you can play the song slower. This way you give your brain and hands a bit more time to process everything on the go while maintaining the original pitch and key of the song.

As a result, you can get more confident at a lower speed to then move on to the actual speed at which Greenday recorded the song. Feel free to spend as much time as necessary practicing at a low speed. Also, try to be disciplined about this, and do not move on the the faster speed until you have completely mastered the song at the lower speed. 

Besides chords and strumming, Roadie Coach will also help you with your singing. You will get the lyrics conveniently displayed on the screen while you sing along. The app will also give you valuable feedback on your singing, so you can improve that area as well.
