Folow these links to go to Part 2 and Part 3 of this lesson.

This song was one of my favourites as a teenager. Really connected, and maybe you feel that too. You can play this real simple, as a beginner's open-chord strummy thing, or you can learn all the fingerstyle and solo parts and do it for real.

There's a vid for each bit, one for the intro, one for the chords, verses and chorus and another for the solo. I didn't do the harmony part solo bit, cos it was going to be hard to teach, and it's not hard to play if you get a tab.

There's something for everyone in this lesson!

See related lessons for the Natural Harmonics lesson I mention in the video.


As a little bonus

A cool orchestral version is featured (6 minutes in) in a video of my fave base jumper, Jeb Corliss, a total legend (see additional video to the right). Insane. I'd love to do this one day, but I don't think I have big enough kahoona's! ;) I don't even skydive any more :( Long may you run dude!
