Lesson notes

Galileo is a song written by Emily Saliers and recorded and performed by folk rock group the Indigo Girls. It was released in 1992 on their platinum-selling fourth studio album ‘Rites Of Passage’.

The lesson covers both Emily’s and Amy’s guitar parts. The key of C, capoed on the 5th fret, where the guitar is tuned as DADGBC and the key of E, capoed on the 1st fret, standard tuning.

The song contains uptempo strumming, an easy progression, a few embellishments and colorful chords, which act as a perfect accompaniment to their usual tightly woven harmonies.
