Lesson notes

The Association’s first hit, climbing to number 7 on the charts in 1966, was Along Comes Mary, written by Tandyn Almer.

The song opens with a cool bass riff, followed by syncopate, percussive changes over an A Minor sequence.

The rest of the progression is quite unusual, drawing chords from a couple nearby keys, ending with another heavily syncopated series of chords. This is a somewhat challenging strumming song.
