Hi everyone,


Today's Target and Pay Per Lesson release has just been released, So Far Away by Carole King.


Carole King will be remembered historically as one of the greatest writers of our day. Her early tunes, written with
then husband Gerry Goffin, became huge hits for many groups in the early sixties. At the end of the decade she
started a solo career leading to her second album, Tapestry.


With the help of James Taylor and much of his circle of musical friends, Tapestry became a signature album of the
seventies. So Far Away is a delicate, wistful song that she wrote having left the East Coast.


The lesson tries to create the piano arrangement on the guitar, which brings in some unusual chord voicings and
shapes.


The accompaniment is mostly using the right hand like the two hands on a piano, the thumb playing a simple bass
pattern and the fingers grabbing chords, mostly on the quarter note beats.


Enjoy this level 4 lesson!

Thx for this lesson Neil... back in the day everyone owned this album !

If you're on a Tapestry kick at the moment, how about a guitar version of It's Too Late ? That was another of my favourites.

Another great song Neil! I was only 9 years old when this came out, so I feel like I have heard this song all of my life. It's one of those songs that takes a person back to people, places and times and sparks more memories that are "far away".

Thanks for the lesson!
Bart

Hey David,

Going back about 6 years I think, It's Too Late was the first lesson I did from Tapestry. Check it out-
