Angie Guitar Lesson (Part 1)

OK, let’s jump into the lesson. In this video we learn how to play the main progression of the song. This section reappears through the whole piece so it’s something you really must master very well. Thankfully it’s not too hard but it’s still certainly no walk in the park. As always, just take it very slow to begin with.


Part 2

There are many sections to this piece and learning the structure of it is one of the biggest challenges of the entire thing. So really make sure you listen repeatedly to the song so you’re able to navigate it correctly.
