Hey guys! 🙂 Today’s video: “Starving” – Hailee Steinfeld Guitar Tutorial was VOTED by the majority of you in my most recent poll!

Congrats if you voted for it! 😀 This song is super awesome and fun to play! Grab your guitars because I’m about to show you how to play that awesome picking pattern in the most easy way to learn!

For chords & strumming, if you’re not so great with the barre chords yet…don’t fret! Just add some extra practice in to get those barre chords down. I know I totally could have used a capo for easier chords, but I’m not all about taking the EASY way out. And that’s how I want you all to approach learning guitar as well.

It’s easy to get comfortable where you are at, but if you never challenge yourself, you won’t get any better or learn anything new.

Plus, using a capo will make the song sound farther away from the original version. If you want it to sound like the original version, you’ll definitely want to play sans capo. 😉

Hey! My name is Michelle Arseneau and I go by the persona “Guitar Goddess.” Easier to remember, right? I teach beginner/intermediate guitar lessons here on YouTube because I have a passion for both music and for helping people. My goal is to inspire & motivate people like YOU all over the world to reach their guitar goals and push through the struggles without giving up.

To me Guitar Goddess does NOT mean “I’m the best guitarist out there.” To me, the meaning of Guitar Goddess is on a much deeper and interconnected level. Guitar Goddess is that indescribable feeling I get whenever I play my guitar. I feel beautiful, confident & positive. It’s unlike anything else. I feel like it’s something other guitarists can relate to. Guitar Goddess does not define my skills or my playing style and I don’t think the name I chose is un-deserving in any way. In my opinion, every female guitarist should be able to call herself a Guitar Goddess no matter what style of music she plays or how experienced she is. It’s not about skill. It’s about the passion.
