Lesson notes

Closer To the Heart is a song by Rush from their 1977 album A Farewell to Kings.
This lesson provides an in-depth look at the acoustic guitar parts that make up the intro and first two verses of the song (before the switch is made to electric guitar). 
It also breaks down the differences between the original studio version and various live versions of the parts, and analyzes the possible reasons Alex Lifeson may have had for utilizing these different approaches.
