From The Beginning by Emerson, Lake & Palmer | acoustic
An acoustic guitar lesson on how to play "From the Beginning” by Emerson, Lake and Palmer, written by Greg Lake, from their 1972 album "Trilogy."
It reached #39 on the US charts.
I’ve always really loved this song! It has that mystical vibe about it that a lot of Greg Lake songs have.
It’s very well written and played, with some unusual and interesting chords, and of course there’s that KILLER synth solo at the end too!
I always thought it might have been in an open tuning but it’s just standard. Greg Lake is a great guitar player and writer. The acoustic songs he did with ELP have a certain magic about them.
“You see its all clear, you were meant to be here, from the beginning”
I’ve always thought that was such a great line!
I had a lot of fun learning the song and recording the demo. I hope you enjoy the video and playing this great tune. Cheers
