Lesson notes

California King Bed is a recent song by Rihanna, coming out in 2010 on her album Loud. It features a few basic acoustic guitar techniques that can be applied to many songs. It uses simple strumming, cross picking (non-alternating), hybrid picking (using fingers along with the pick), and some percussive picking. All of this is wrapped up with some easy chords in the key of G.
