Lesson notes

Another hit for the Monkees written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, Steppin’ Stone started out as a hit for Paul Revere & The Raiders before becoming heavily identified with The Monkees.

The song might fall into the “Caveman” category, with really only one chord sequence, but there are some texture changes and new techniques that can be learned by working on it. These include double-time strumming and what I call the “reverse drag.” Some quick barre movements are needed as well. Be sure to check out this fun song and lesson.
