Lesson notes

Kind And Generous is from Natalie Merchant's 1998 album Ophelia. The songs starts off with the Chorus, which is really just sing-a-long humming, and very catchy. Most of the song can be played easily with a couple different approaches to the right hand strumming tachnique, which is best done with the fingers.

The Intro from the original studio recording is another matter. It is fairly fast with som accented off-beat 16th notes. This is broken down in detail and played with a metronome and quite a few different speeds. Alternative, easier approaches are presented as well but if you have some experience with complex rhythmic tunes you will enjoy the challenge.
