Example JAMES TAYLOR styl e
[Bar 21] This G to D movement is another Taylor favourite and is guided by the sixth-string bassline descending just one fret. Watch James’s fretting hand, and you’ll see that he uses rather unorthodox chord shapes, especially A and D. But you’ll be fine with ‘normal’ fingerings throughout this piece. [Bar 28] Taylor often serves up the unexpected, such as this Csus 2 chord – typical of the devices that add a brief tension to his writing when needed. Taylor’s hands seem to crawl across the fretboard as he changes chords; as notes are played he moves the fingers in time to play the next shape cleanly.
