SONG 202 • Then Came The Morning by The Lone Bellow

Here is my lesson for Then Came the Morning by The Lone Bellow. This is on the hard side of beginner (there are some bar chords) and I also go through some easy side of intermediate material. The song is relatively simple, but not too straight forward: it has a 6/8 time signature, uses a capo on the 1st fret, and the song structure is a little unusual. We can also add some cool intermediate chord voicings and fills, which make the song more interesting. So overall, this one is not too hard but there are still a lot of great concepts to touch on.
