Lesson notes

Forever Autumn is taken from Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, featuring Justin Hayward on vocals. 

This lesson is entirely based on how Justin Hayward performs it.

He plays the song with chordshapes in the key of Am (Capo V), using relatively easy chords, while dressing it up with several embellishments.

The challenging parts are the intro (flatpicking) and the bridge (timing), which we break down in great detail.

Other than that we of course take a look at both hands, and go through the progression and arrangement.
