Alison - Guitar Lesson
Songs & Artists - Elvis Costello

Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members Alison is one of Elvis Costello's best known songs, it was released on his first album My Aim Is True, in 1977. Like many of his songs, the lyrics can be interpreted in multiple ways, and it is not likely that this is the love song that it might appear upon first listen. The song is in the key of E, and that means plenty of barre chords, including some 1-beat changes. The lesson uses a fingerstyle plucking technique in the intro, followed by finger strumming accompanying the verse and chorus.

Very dissapointed that I can't access anything except the sales spiel clip asking for money. No preview? Please unsubscribe me ASAPwritten by kim burton, December 01, 2012
Neil Thanks for the lesson by one of my favorite artists, and the song that he is probably best known. I was most interested to see how you would address the intro. Many of his early songs are loaded with chord changes like Welcome to the Working Week. When I was first learning to play guitar in the late 70's they were real challenges, and greatly improved my ability to play barre chords. Thanks again. Paul written by ttpaul, December 03, 2010
