Lesson notes

Hurricane is from Bob Dylan’s 1975 album Desire and is a throwback to his narrative, ballad songs of the 60s. Like many of those, this song featured a one-section chord progression that continued through numerous verses. A couple of important techniques are emphasized; muting the strings with the left hand on certain beats of the measure to add a noticeable percussive effect, and adding a sixteenth note rolling strum at the end of measures as the chords transition.
