Lesson notes

Sunshine Superman is one of the songs that took Donovan out of the folk world and helped create the developing sound of psychedelic rock. The use of exotic instruments like the sitar, combined with distorted lead guitar, courtesy of a young Jimmy Page, and the addition of abstract and trippy lyrics took the world by storm in 1966. Even The Beatles headed down the colorful path. This lesson starts with a blind play through for our ear-training students, and continues with muting techniques, and adding fills and solos to the simple chord progression.
