Falling Slowly – Glen Hansard – Beginner Fingerstyle Guitar Cover

by IanM on February 22, 2014

A beginner fingerstyle cover of the song “Falling Slowly” by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova from the movie “Once”. Chords used are C, G, Am and F. Capo on the 4th fret. Fingering within first  3 frets.

I was randomly messing around a few years ago and found the finger picking pattern by accident. It might not be exactly correct to the original, but this is how I generally play it.

A really simple but lovely song, great for people who are looking for an easy song to get started finger picking.
