Difficulty level: Advanced
Bar Chords: Yes
Thumb-over Chords: No

Tuning: Open D
The lesson covers Cat’s acoustic guitar part (not the bouzouki part). The full lesson is broken into sections corresponding to the different sections of the recording. The preview video shows the introduction taken from the full lesson. The left hand part is not difficult but it qualifies as advanced because of the unconventional rhythm. It’s in a regular strum pattern of 7 beats to the bar. The structure is also surprisingly complex.
