Lesson notes

The Streets Of Laredo, also known as Cowboy’s Lament, is an early ballad about life in the Old West. There are a few very popular themes for storylines in these songs and this one follows the “young cowboy, done wrong, dying before his time”, theme. This lesson starts with a ‘Work It Out’ approach and some ear training exercises to figure out the chord progression and melody, then gets into a couple of ways to create instrumental arrangements, continues with looking at it in a few different keys, and concludes with a short sing along.
