Lesson notes

Devoted To You is a song by country music and pop songwriting team and couple Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, who have written many songs for numerous artists.

The best-known recording was by The Everly Brothers. It was released in 1958 as the B-side of their single ‘Bird Dog’, but reached the charts on its own.

This lesson teaches a fingerpicking arrangement in the key of C (Capo IV). It is encouraged to vary it up, and for that we take a look at several ways of how to do so.

We also discuss a few techniques in order to transition from one chord to the other smoothly. This is in my opinion crucial for any finger picking song, no matter if it's an easy or a complex one. 

Personally I do like to play both the intro and outro in a way that sounds similar to the original recording, so we break that down as well.
