    Fabulous! I had enough on my plate when you first emailed me about it that I deferred working on it. But I’ve come back to it and am very glad that I did.

    Great lesson,I had to break it down to 1, 2 and 4 bar phrases to get the picking pattern down and then apply it to other chord progressions I know,which made learning this lesson easier.Thank you for all these cool chord comping etudes.

    I really appreciate how you display your lessons. I have a teacher who I receive guitar lessons from each week, but I find that even though I have been reading music on both the guitar and saxophones, the way you illustrate the tabs help me with tab reading. Thanks again!

    Shot for the song! Couldn’t access mailbox for long time, so this was a welcome find. See you’ve sent more goodies, but can only thank you tomorrow, time permitting. Much love…

    these types of lessons are great! Thank you so much for providing something for people at all different levels of ability. One question (very basic, and should be obvious, but I struggle with this – sorry), what key is this in? Is it Am?

    1. Dirk Laukens

      Hey Jay, yes, the song is in Am. You can easily find the key by playing the chords and listening to which chord would end the tune…

    Very nice, is there a way to add the melody line overtop? Maybe that would make it too complicated.

    cool – what is the best way to print this out?

    1. Dirk Laukens

      Hi Dana, just right click the sheet music somewhere neer the top and select “Print Picture…”. There are 3 pages in this arrangement, just see where the first one ends after printing and you can select the second and then the third one…
