Sweet Baby James by James Taylor

I'm really in a James Taylor love phase I think... this song is just amazing, beautiful, not too hard to play and what better song could there be to sing a little fella to sleep?

Take it easy and get the strum/picking thing down and the rest should come pretty easy.

Basic Strumming Pattern:

1

+

2

+

3

+

Bass

 

D

U

D

 

 

When it plays the B bass note when going from the G to the D, the B note falls on beat 3.

Bass note always played with your thumb, the other strums done with your first finger.

Enjoy!

p.s - you did go and buy the album Sweet Baby James didn't you? Amazing record... get it now!
