Greetings Guitar Wizards!!
Coney Island Avenue! Here we go in the key of A with a song that I wrote a few years ago to celebrate my favorite street in Brooklyn. In this lesson we'll examine the bass run that makes the body of the verse and look at the use of the D9 chord and melody I use to finish it off. The tune itself is simple but I've put it here as a lesson to illustrate, for those of you who may need the encouragement, just how simple songwriting can be when you have a few guitar chops and a slogan. For the most part I wrote this in my head and added the guitar later. It seemed too simple to actually be a song but lo and behold....it is one!! I hope you have fun with it and please let me know if this lesson is helpful, I love getting comments from you all!
