Lesson notes

One of the most intricate acoustic guitar songs from Jethro Tull’s Aqualung is *Mother Goose.*This is Ian Anderson at his intricate and whimsical best. The song is played with a capo at the fifth fret, helping to create one of his signature sounds, and uses some easy, if occasionally unusual chords. The main challenges in the song are the rapid and precise alternate picking technique, and the great use of off-beat syncopation.
