Lesson notes

Simple Twist Of Fate is a very easy Dylan song from his 1975 album Blood On The Tracks. He plays it in Open E Tuning and most of the chords just use 2 or 3 fingers.

The strumming consists of light bass notes hit on beats 1 and 3, with steady downs and ups on the higher strings on the other beats. We look at the way Bob played it, as well as a slightly more difficult way in Standard Tuning.
