Lesson notes

Joe Cocker made Billy Preston’s song, You are So Beautiful, a major hit. In this lesson we’ll learn a fairly easy-to-play instrumental arrangement for solo fingerstyle guitar in standard tuning. We’ll breakdown each part of the song, and then for those who are up for a bit of a deep dive into some harmony, we’ll explore some of the unusual chord choices in this song and try to see why they sound the way they do and why they work!
