Lesson notes

David Gates penned some great tunes in the early 1970s for his band Bread. *If *is an example of his command of simple, but extended chord progressions that back up a memorable melody with touching lyrics, all the ingredients for a great song.

This lesson shows the arpeggios he played but also includes segments on theory where you are challenged to analyze the chords as far as their names. If you want to take this harmony challenge do not print out the chord chart but just start with the tab.

Then work on figuring out the names of the chords yourself. All the answers are included, as well as how to play the song in its entirety.
