Lesson notes

Plain White T’s is an American pop punk band from Illinois. The band is best known for their number-one hit ‘Hey There Delilah’.

Airplane is another lovely fingerpicking song from their 2010 studio album ‘Wonders of the Younger’.

The song is done with a steady fingerpicking arrangement with bass notes played on every beat, and an occasional exception.

It features several chords in the key of Gm, which can be played with different fingerings. The lesson shows what the most efficient ones are and how they benefit ones playing in general.

The progression is quite unusual and the lesson also includes a segment on how the chords fit in the key or what their role is when they don’t.
