Lesson notes

Daylight Again is a Stephen Stills tune from the 1982 album of the same name. It features Stills noodling around with melody notes in the key of D Minor and lightly strumming a droning D power chord, meaning just roots and fifths, no third. The strumming is a form of frailing, using the fingers to strum as well as pick out melody notes.

Stills plays this with a lot of variations and improvising in live performances, but this lesson goes into great detail about the way it was done in the studio. There is a short look at some of the additions found in live versions.
