Lesson notes

Here we have another acoustic classic from the masterful Ian Anderson (at least the part we look at in this lesson). My God opens with some noodling in the key of A Minor, which quickly takes a virtuoso turn with some rapid arpeggios, before heading into the main section which really just consists of a 2-measure vamp and some simple strumming of open chords.

The big challenges in My God are understanding the time signature and keeping count correctly, along with the usual, constant up and down motion with the right hand.
