Lesson notes

Ten Thousand Words is from The Avett Brothers album I And Love And You (2009) and is an example of how a simple chord progression and a basic accompaniment can be the background for a great song. This lesson is presented as an ear-training exercise to recognize chord progressions, transpose them to various keys, and use a capo to create a second guitar part. There is a short segment on Pentatonic Patterns as well.
