Lesson notes

Walk Away Renée was a hit for The Left Banke in 1966. Written by teenage keyboard player Michael Brown, but also involved were Bob Calili and Tony Sansone, it has stood the test of time and remains a classic from this one-hit-wonder band.

We already have an accompaniment version lesson here but this is Neil's solo arrangement, which has a few difficult chord shapes and left hand moves. The student should be quite familiar with solo fingerpicking tunes before tackling this but there is a lot to be learned from working on it.

On our old difficulty scale this would be about 8.5.
