Lesson notes

Baby Blue was a hit for Badfinger in 1972, having been released on their 1971 album Straight Up. Pete Ham wrote it about a girlfriend of his who had accompanied them on their recent US tour. The song features a simple, slightly distorted guitar riff followed by a short scale run that introduces many of the measures. This lesson goes over the chords and fills, and includes transitions from strumming to scales or arpeggios that are a bit tricky.
