Lesson notes

Love Song is one of the rare tunes to appear on an Elton John album that he did not write. The songwriter was Lesley Duncan, who was known a bit in England but never achieved worldwide recognition. She did play the guitar part and sing harmony on Elton's 1970 album Tumbleweed Connection.

The guitar part is very basic fingerpicking and uses only two chords with some embellishments. Nancy and Ann Wilson, of Heart also are known to perform the song live and this lesson also covers Nancy's version of the song, which has a bit more variety in the chords and picking.
