Lesson notes

Green Green Grass Of Home, written by Claude Putman and a worldwide hit for Welsh singer Sir Tom Jones.

We take a look at his version in the key of G, where the guitar is capoed on the 1st fret. The arrangement is strummed with straight feel and the progression consists of only three chords which makes it a perfect song for beginners.

The lesson also covers Joan Baez’ version in the key of C, done with swing feel, including alternating bassnotes. This version probably has a few more challenges, in particular because of the F-chord.
