Lesson notes

Three Times A Lady, written by artist Lionel Richie, is a song by American soul group the Commodores, from their 1977 album ‘Natural High'.

This lesson shows a fingerpicking arrangement in the key of G, where the guitar is capoed on the first fret.

It features relatively easy chord shapes and several chords with bass notes other than the root.

The song is in ¾ time and one could keep the picking very simple. Yet, it is encouraged to change it up a bit and to incorporate some of the melody notes as done on the piano, including a little of the guitar solo.
