Lesson notes

*Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys*is a song originally done by its writer, Ed Bruce, but made very famous in 1978 when Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings released it on their duo album Waylon & Willie. It is a great example of a simple I-IV-V-I chord sequences and can really be played in any key. This lesson looks at it in D and E, as W&W did it. It is in 3/4 time but strummed very quickly, really feeling like there is only one beat in each measure
