Lesson notes

Poison was one of the glam/hair metal bands of the 80s who had their biggest hit with the power ballad *Every Rose Has Its Thorn*. Typical of attitudes and trends at the time, the song is a simple chord progression gently strummed with lyrics that can be interpreted many different ways. This 4-chord song is great for beginners as it starts introducing the technique of different strumming patterns in consecutive measures.
