Here we have the song Goodbye Liza Jayne.
Very basic simplified version but
something I think you guys would like.
It's in the key of A, and so the way we do
this is we use our capo on the second
fret, and play it essentially like we
would play it out of open G.
We just Capo two play it out of A.
Now one thing with this song,
is that you'll notice it has a couple of
what we call pick up notes.
So, I've been finding a lot of students
maybe having a,
a little bit of trouble with pick up
A lot of times, we'll do a backing track,
and when you hear the first chord of
the backing track, there's actually a few
notes that you play before that.
So they, they call them pick up notes.
It's, it's just a few notes you play to
sort of lead into the song.
So those notes in this case are just.
So it's just a, a very basic scalic
But when you hear the count off of the
song, you'll hear one, two, or one.
So you actually have to start before the
So that's what pickup notes are.
So just be on the lookout for that.
In addition to that, this is a pretty
It has, does have kind of a scalic element
You're just, you know,
the first few notes of the melody are just
pretty much in A scale.
It's just do, re, me, fa and
then a little slide down
on the third string and then.
And a same type of slide down on the
fourth string, and then scale again.
And then to wrap up that phrase.
Is just that.
And the only difficult thing about that
When you go from here.
So you're playing a, a, a closed note
fourth fret of the fourth
string straight to second fret of the
So you may wanna practice that just a
little bit on its own.
Just going from this note
to that note.
And then the open A note.
So that's the A part.
The B part starts on the high string.
There's a little chromatic step up there
on the third string.
Might be something else to take a look at
before you practice the whole song.
And then, once again.
And the B part ends the same as the A
And you'll find that with these songs a
lot of times, parts will sort of repeat or
And so the way the A part of this song
ends is the same way the B part is.
And just a little note about A and
B part, a lot of times you'll find these
songs have, they have an A part,
they have a B part, you know, two, two
sections, and those parts will repeat.
So you'll have two A sections, and two b
So all that means is you play the A part
twice, and the b part twice, and
that should be notated in your tablature.
So we're gonna go ahead and play this
song, and you can see how it's performed.
