Gillian Welch "Look At Miss Ohio"

Lesson description: Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings excel at writing classic songs that sound like they've been around 50 years, even though they're quite current. This arrangement of "Look At Miss Ohio" is a combination of the album version, as well as an Austin City Limits version I found on YouTube.

I started by transcribing Rawlings' sbrilliant, jazz-tinged runs, and then went ahead and added the verse vocal melody to fill the piece out. Watch for gentle crosspicking, open string melodic devices, and some clever chromatics. This song has a relaxed feel and simple chords, but there's actually a lot of thoughtful musicality going on in there!
