Lesson notes

Clifton In The Rain is an early Al Stewart song, from his first album Bedsitter Images, released in 1967. It is a great example of using normal chords in unusual phrases and sequences, and combining a beautiful melody with colorful lyrics. It really shows where Al was as a young songwriter before hitting it big a decade later. This lesson goes into taking the picking patterns into your own world and creating a different accompaniment every time you play a song.
