Lesson notes

Home Again is another little pearl on singer-songwriter Carole King’s multiple Grammy Award winning 2nd studio album ‘Tapestry’ (1971), which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

The lesson teaches a finger style arrangement in the key of G, where the guitar is capoed on the 2nd fret.

We take a close up look at the right hand, in order to have a starting point, but one should be really comfortable fingerpicking in general.

It is strongly encouraged to play the song as free form as Carole King does, but the arrangement does include a few parts in which we try to somewhat copy her piano playing, like the intro/interlude/outro and in particular the instrumental part.

Again, anyone trying to tackle this song needs to be comfortable fingerpicking and for example shift positions on the fly.
