Lesson notes

Mrs. Robinson was originally written for the movie 'The Graduate', starring Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft. Paul Simon later wrote more lyrics and polished the few that he had before they included it on their 4th album, Bookends. This lesson starts with a Campfire Version, then adds the main riff ,a fill and some passing bass notes, before ffinishing up with a flashy instrumental flatpicking arrangement of the intro. The Campfire Version is a level 4, the addition of the riff and such pushes it to a 5 or 6, and the instrumental intro bumps it up into the level 8 range.
