Lesson notes

Live is an American alternative rock band from York, Pennsylvania, which nowadays consists of four members. It’s original lead singer Ed Kowalczyk, who wrote much of their material, left the band in 2009.

The melancholic Overcome is taken from their 2001 album ‘V’ and became associated with the September 11 attacks on the United States.

The lesson covers the progression and the chords in Dropped D Tuning, where the guitar is capoed on the 2nd fret. It shows how to incorporate some of the melody notes as recorded on the piano in the original recording.

We also take a quick look at how Ed Kowalczyk plays it when performing it by himself.
