The Court Of The Crimson King - King Crimson - Guitar Lesson
Songs & Artists - King Crimson

Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members King Crimson's 1969 debut album was one of the first that started defining progressive rock. The pieces featured extended arrangements with instrumental sections.

Greg Lake has been reviving some of these songs in recent years so it seems like appropriate to take an acoustic look at the title tune.

The lesson includes many different techniques: arpeggio cross-picking, hybrid picking (using a pick and fingers), harmonics, picking a simple melody out while strumming, and playing parallel octaves while muting all the other strings.

Thanks for doing some King Crimson. I love them too! I know I will struggle with the picking and chord changes, but look forward to tackling this one!written by guitardude7, March 25, 2016
