Lesson notes

Evergreen (Love Theme From A Star Is Born) is the theme song from the 1976 film ‘A Star Is Born’. It was composed by Barbra Streisand with lyrics by Paul Williams. The song earned them an Academy Award, a Grammy Award and a Golden Globe.

This lesson teaches a fingerpicking arrangement in the key of A, with the guitar tuned down a half step, as Streisand performs it in pretty much all her concerts.

We take a look at the many chords and shapes, including several barre chords and chords with bassnotes other than the root.

The fingerpicking should be done in a random way, anyone trying to tackle this song should be completely comfortable fingerpicking in general. The lesson runs a few very important fingerpicking techniques in order to change chords smoothly. Those are in my opinion crucial for any fingerstyle arrangement.
