Lesson notes

‘The Road Home’ is a live album of a concert by the rock band Heart, released in 1995. It was produced by John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and contains acoustic versions of many of Heart’s hits. It included the band’s greatest hit and power ballad Alone.

This lesson is based on that particular acoustic version of Alone, as primarily performed by Howard Leese, who has been with Heart the longest, besides the Wilson sisters.

The arrangement features both fingerpicking as well as strumming. There are relatively many chords, including different chord shapes, inversions, and a few barre chords.
