Episode Summary

Fire and Rain
"Fire and Rain" was recorded by James Taylor on the 1970 album, "Sweet Baby James." In this iVideosongs guitar lesson, instructor Rob Schumann shows you how to play the signature intro, guitar chords, and fingerstyle patterns from the song that has inspired songwriters for several decades. Guitarists will learn the arpeggiated parts as played on the classic recording, as well as typical embellishments often used by James Taylor in live performance settings. Incorporating use of slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and arpeggios, this song is a perfect addition to the intermediate-level player's repertoire. This slow tempo song is played on an acoustic steel string guitar with a capo. Tablature and chord grids are embedded in the video for all song segments along with a full song performance in sync with the backing track.moreless
