Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members As many of you know, Al Stewart is one of my favorite songwriter/guitarists. Almost Lucy happens to be one of my favorite songs of his, released in 1978 on his Time Passages album, and I have been fortunate enough to perform this tune with Al on multiple occasions. The slightly skewed chord progression, cryptic story line, great rhythmic feel, along with nice lead fills originally played by Tim Renwick, combine to make a valuable lesson from many angles. This lesson focuses on the progression and details about creating a second guitar part using 4-string triads up the neck, derived from the E, A, and D families of chord shapes.

PLEASE, PLEASE do a lesson showing how to play Al Stewart's "End of the Day"--one of my all-time favorite songs...written by cbbelcher87987, September 17, 2015
Great riff on Time Passages. I'd love to see an entire lesson.written by stevevatterott48918, August 31, 2013
Al has been my favorite too for over 30 years. Would love to see more of his stuff from you as tabs for Al are pretty rare. I saw you play with him years ago at Villa Montalvo. Also I have trouble viewing on an iPad. Does this require flash?written by Gary123456, August 31, 2013
