Lesson notes

*Hymn 43*was written by Ian Anderson and released on the classic Jethro Tull album Aqualung in 1971. The album consist of quite a range of sounds and styles and this song is based on a simple riff, a few easy chord changes, and a couple of nice little guitar fills. Most of the songs Ian Anderson writes, and especially his acoustic guitar songs, are very challenging. Hymn 43 is more of an electric guitar song and this video guitar lesson is presented in four parts, which include a close look at the chords and left hand techniques, a section-by-section breakdown, and a play along segment with a metronome.
