by Jim Croce • Lesson #468 • Jan 20, 2023
Hey there, friends! Excited to share this new lesson teaching you how to play Jim Croce’s Box #10, released in 1972. On the surface this may appear to be typical folk-rock fare in the Key of C, but there’s so many little touches that really elevate it into something special.
In addition to teaching you the chords, I’ll also explain the strumming patterns, the walk-down riff, and the intro riff — which features a bluesy little fill that’s a blast to play. This is the first of his songs I’ve ever learned, and it’s been an absolute blast to learn over the past couple weeks… I hope you enjoy!
Here’s a handful of essential techniques used in this song, including the two strumming patterns I mention in my main lesson. Video tutorials and print-friendly PDF guides are available for each lesson via the links below.
