Lesson notes

Crying In The Rain is a song written by Carole King and Howard Greenfield, originally recorded by The Everly Brothers.

This lesson teaches the arrangement with chord shapes in the key of C, as done by the brothers during their 1983 reunion concert. For the album version one would need to capo the guitar on the 2nd fret, which puts it in the absolute key of D. 

We take a look at the chords, the strumming at the speed of 8th’s including a bounce, the progression and the little arpeggio in the outro.
