Lesson notes

Norah Jones is an American singer-songwriter and actress. She launched her solo music career with the release of her 2002 debut album ‘Come Away With Me’.

It’s a mellow, acoustic pop album with soul, country, blues, folk and jazz influences. It became highly successful and won eight Grammy Awards in 2003, including Album of the Year, as well as Record of the Year.

In this lesson we take a look at the title track of the album. While often performing it on the piano, she occasionally plays it on the guitar as well. Interestingly enough, she has done so both in 3/4 time, as recorded on the original, but also in 4/4 time.

The song is in the key of C, with only five open chords in first position. Both versions require some palm muting and picking out individual strings by the right hand. The 4/4 version includes a few hammer-ons as well.
