Lesson notes

Mother Nature’s Son is a short, acoustic piece played by Paul McCartney from The Beatles’ eponymous 1968 album, aka The White Album. It really showcases Paul’s smooth accompaniment technique of combining pinching strings as in fingerpicking, with finger strumming and hitting bass notes with the thumb. There are also a lot of interesting chord shapes, using hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides to embellish the changes.
