Lesson notes

Although some might consider them a 3-hit wonder, The Classics IV were a very talented and creative band.

Their 1968 hit Stormy, written by bandmates Dennis Yost, James Cobb, and Buddy Buie, made it to #5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song features a jazzy progression, percussive strumming, some nice guitar fills, and a sax solo, which are all covered in the lesson.

There is also a short segment on double-time strumming.
