As we explore the high strung guitar, we turn to a 1996 single from Tracy Chapman’s album “New Beginning.” The LP did very well on the charts at #4 and was certified quintuple platinum. Although the album fared well, its third single failed to chart. With its mellow sound, I would have expected it to place on the adult contemporary charts; however, that didn’t happen.
Tracy Chapman plays fingerstyle high strung guitar on this particular cut. In addition, Cameron Stone’s ‘cello and Lili Haydn’s violin both figure prominently in the arrangement.
