Lesson notes

Neil Young's 1970 album, After The Gold Rush had a bunch of compelling and beautiful songs, including rockers like Southern Man, flatpicking classics like Tell Me Why, country staples like Oh Lonesome Me, and the hypnotically captivating Birds. He normally performs it on the piano but the recent release of a 50th Anniversary Edition of CSNY's Deja Vu included a stunning guitar version with Graham Nash adding harmony in the chorus.

This lesson follows that, going into double time strumming, hammer on embellishments on some chords, a very unusual time signature change, and even covers Nash's harmony.
