Fire and Rain [2/2] by James Taylor

I love this song... I'm a huge James Taylor fan and listen to his stuff all the time, but I've not been playing any, but that's about to change - it's wonderful and fun to play and I'm sure you are going to enjoy learning it as much as I did! :)

He uses some pretty odd fingerings when he plays, I don't really recommend that you use those fingers, they are very unconventional, but he makes them sound amazing, guess you could too with a bit of practice!

Worth checking out his live versions too - he's pretty consistent with the intro but makes wonderful embellishments through the rest of the song.

And if you have not heard his album Sweet Baby James, check it out, superb songs, and some really awesome fingerstyle guitar playing!
