Lesson notes

Jackson Browne’s first album, Saturate Before Using got him on the radio in 1972 with Doctor My Eyes but many of his songs had already been recorded by artists like Tom Rush and Nico. His debut album also contained Song For Adam, a tune written after the death of his friend Adam Saylor. This lesson goes over the fingerpicking intro and chord progression to the verses and choruses, leaving the patterns somewhat open to improvising, the way Jackson would play it over the years. A solid foundation in alternate bass picking will make learning this song relatively easy.
