Lesson notes

Samuel Beam, better known by his stage and recording name Iron & Wine, is an American singer-songwriter, who rose to prominence with a blend of whispered vocals and soft, homespun indie folk.

Naked As We Came is taken from his 2004 album, Our Endless Numbered Days, that signaled his arrival on the indie folk scene.

The song features a basic, simple and moderately fast travis style picking arrangement which acts as a lovely accompaniment for Samuel’s vocals and deep lyrics.

It contains a few colorful chords and easy chord shapes in the key of D, in Dropped D-tuning, where the guitar is capoed on the second fret.
