The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy) Lesson

The intro is really catchy and very enjoyable to play but it’s probably also the hardest part of the song to learn. However, once you have it mastered you’ll be able to play the vast majority of the song because the verse is played more or less the same as the intro, with the exception of a few small changes.
