Cuckoo Cocoon  Genesis


" Cuckoo Cocoon "
by Genesis
From ' The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway '
TUNING: Standard
ARRANGEMENT: Taken off studio version. The guitars are mellow and
effects laden. The intro and regular verse seem to have
been recorded using a 'Travis' style of finger picking,
where the thumb is alternating. This version is a little
more syncopated and more to my liking.
I will also include an 'optional' more aggressive
style of picking for comparison.
Time signature : 4/4
