Lesson notes

On The Bus Mall, by The Decemberists, is taken from their 3rd studio album 'Picaresque' (2005 ). It's another one of those songs, which showcases frontman Colin Meloy’s incredible storytelling. 

Behind this moving story is an arrangement in the key of G. This should be doable for most guitar players.

We take a look at all the usual suspects, the chords, the strumming, and of course the progression, with all its little details.
