Richard Thompson – Dimming of the Day
Learn how to play Richard Thompson – Dimming of the Day note-for-note on guitar.
Difficulty level: Advanced. Actually nothing here is especially difficult to play, but it merits the advanced label because the fretting hand fingers are constantly making new shapes. Richard Thompson almost never holds a single chord shape for more than a bar.
Barre chords: No
Thumb over chords: Yes
Playing Style: Fingerpicked. The version taught is the one on the Acoustic Classics album. RT plays with a pick and fingers (hybrid picking) but the song is taught using thumb and fingers.
