Lesson notes

In 1989 Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne put together Free Fallin’, a very easy song with only a few chords, in just a couple days. It was the leading track off the album Full Moon Fever. It is a great example of taking a very basic progression, dressing it up with some syncopated changes, and adding a few simple guitar parts to create quite a variety of textures and sounds. This lesson looks at three different guitar parts, as well as going over the syncopated strumming in great detail. There is no tab included as the explanations and demonstrations should make everything clear.
