Below is the lesson for “L-O-V-E” by Nat King Cole.
One of the most enduring love songs from the last century. We’ve arranged this song as a two-parter, where the first half is a chord melody, while the second half is meant for vocal accompaniment.
This arrangement is played entirely with the thumb. This is great because it puts the focus on what your left hand is doing rather than the right. Speaking of which, the most difficult part of this piece is the chord work. There’s quite a few jumps, barres, and tricky shapes.
Make sure to take it slow and use the fingerings that Christopher recommends. Keep in mind that if a chord is too difficult, you can always omit string 4 and strum/fret from 3 down.
