Pretty Women


Recommended Posts

I know there must be numerous versions of this song, but I like the one that starts with the two bars of bass line before the iconic riff. I was watching a video of Roy play this song and also noticed that he fingered the riff different. Hard to believe he would keep changing his fingering for this song, so I am wondering if Steve might have chosen an easier fingering.

Songs in the Song Hits are geared towards specific sessions. Pretty Woman is for Session 8 so yes it is possible Steve chose an easier way to play it.

Best to just listen to the song and compare the original recording to the Song Hits version and see if/where the shortcuts are. Justin Sandercoe does a very good lesson on it with all some nice fills and the iconic riff here;

You and me both @Eracer_Team-DougH, Doug.  I don't need to get back to "clean it up" but I need to get to it to start it!!?   As you can see from my sig I'm supposedly working on it.  But I finished up Song Hits Session 7, "Day Tripper" and then was going to move on to Session 8.  And I changed my sig.  And I was going to start on "Pretty Woman" rather than "Moon River" the other song in S8 just because it's a song I've always liked and I want to learn it.  (The same way with Day Tripper!  That was a lot of fun). 

But then I go distracted by working on songs for my weekly jam and some other stuff I'm working on. 

I keep saying that I am going to get caught up on The Song Hits and get them synchronized with L&M.  But it hasn't happened.
