The second song on Nick Drake’s album Five Leaves Left, River Man is a very dark and moody piece due to a combination of many different elements. It uses unusual chords (in standard tuning), an unusual time signature, a free form melody with its own rhythm not at all connected to the rhythm of the harmony, and profound and provocative lyrics to weave a very complex tapestry of sound and emotions. I may have over rated the difficulty but I hope you enjoy this lesson immensely.
