Lesson notes

Bookends is a short song that was the second half of a medley with Old Friends, by Paul Simon and is from the Simon & Garfunkel album called Bookends. The album also included America and a bunch of other great tunes. This is really a guitar instrumental, although there are two short verses sung over the guitar part. It is done with a capo at the fourth fret using pairs of notes a sixth apart, along with a couple of simple chords.
