Lesson notes

Mother, by Pink Floyd, appears on The Wall, their album released in 1979. The challenge of the song lies in its varied use of time signatures, which we discuss in the lesson.

Although it’s a simple strumming song, we also take a look at a few details of Roger Water’s playing, like the emphasis on beats 1 and 4, as well as a few hammer-ons.
