Lesson notes

Grammy Award winner Bon Iver is an American indie folk band founded in 2007 by singer-songwriter Justin Vernon.

Skinny Love was the first single released from their debut album ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’. It was also successfully covered by artists such as 15-year old Birdie and Ed Sheeran.

It features relatively easy chord shapes in the key of C, in an open C-tuning where the strings are tuned as CGEGCC. It’s in swing time, with a simple main strumming pattern.

The lesson covers the progression as well as all the fun to play riffs and embellishments such as slides, pull-off’s and hammer-on’s which appear throughout the song.
