Description

This song is an etude. The melody is harmonized with triad inversions.
Specific fingerings are given to help with all the chord changes.

This song may sound a little 'blocky', since so many beats have triads on them.

Maybe add volume changes with the strumming hand to create variety.
Try to hold the chords as long as possible before switching.
Some of the chords share notes in common, try to hold those notes when changing chords.
The Em chords have different fingerings depending on where they are in the song.

The beginnings of the song's phrases have three C Major triad inversions that resolve to either an E minor, B diminished, or G Major chord. I sometimes skip the variety and only play Em for all three.
