Lesson notes

In 1992 R.E.M. released one of their biggest albums, Automatic For The People, which had a handful of their biggest hits, including Man On The Moon.

The song is very easy to strum, using only chords in the key of G. The lesson covers the progression and arrangement, with a few thoughts on improvising over the two-chord solo. The biggest tricky part is a quick, syncopated change to Bm.
