Lesson notes

Kris Kristofferson's second album, The Silver Tongued Devil And I included another handful of iconic songs with, arguably The Pilgrim, Chapter 33 being one of the best. Like many of his early songs, the accompaniment is a fairly basic fingerstyle one, mostly hitting 2 bass notes per measure with light strumming or plucking. It also steps up a key from G to A in the second verse, although Kris has played it in at least 3 different keys at various times.

Also included in the lesson is tab to the little vamp that starts the song, as well as a concluding segment featuring a classic bluegrass lick in a few different keys.
