Lesson notes

In the early 1970s Neil Diamond released three huge albums, with the third being Moods in 1972. Play Me was the first single from the album and went on to be a standard at his concerts for years. The guitar part, played by Richard Bennett, is a basic arpeggio pattern in 3/4 time with just a few embellishments and bass runs, which should not be too difficult for beginning to intermediate players.

The song is in the key of D Major but played with a capo at the second fret using chord shapes in the key of C.
