Lesson notes

Songbird is a beautiful song, originally written by Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac. This lesson takes a look at Eva Cassidy’s version, which appears on her 1998 compilation album with the same name. Eva’s version features a simple yet beautiful fingerpicking arrangement in the key of G, which complements her amazing and hunting voice just perfectly. The lesson covers the progression, the picking, the embellishments, such as hammer on’s and pull-off’s and the complete guitar solo.
