Lesson notes

Older Chests is a fingerpicking song by Damien Rice from his first album, O. It is a steady eighth note arpeggio pattern played with chords in the key of C. Many of he chords include notes not really in the chord but held over from a previous chord. It is really just a simple 8-measure progression with a few random variations. He does use his left thumb to fret the low F on the E string but an alternate way of accomplishing that is covered as well.
