Lesson notes

Roger Hodgson’s 12-string guitar was a defining sound for Supertramp in the late 1970s. Even In The Quietest Moments, from the 1977 album of the same name, is an example of Roger at his best.

It is mostly played with small chord shapes on the top 3 or 4 strings, usually keeping the open D in the bass as the chords change.

This lesson is done on both a 12 and a 6-string, and mostly follows the way Roger plays it live and solo.

The crosspicking technique is preferred here and the segments go through the tab almost measure by measure, of which there are less than 16 anyway.

The preview includes a performance by Dan Wayner at our 2017 International Guitar Camp, which is what inspired this lesson in the first place.
