Lesson notes

Rust Never Sleeps, Neil Young’s 1979 album included a side of gentle acoustic songs and a side of electric rockers. Thrasher followed My, My, Hey, Hey on side one and is a great example of how simple songwriting can be.

He uses most of the standard chords in the key of C (although it is capoed up 2 to really be in D), and a simple strumming pattern picking out bass notes with occasional hammer-ons.
