James TaylorCarole King Youve Got a Friend

James Taylor/Carole King, "You've Got a Friend"

Transcription and Fingering: Renato Bellucci

James Taylor (Carole King) is one of the great composers that marked my generation and definitely part of a team of composers that have marked an era, the era of the storytellers, which covered most of the 70s and part of the 80s. The circumstances that inspired these great musicians will simply never return and I consider myself lucky for having been a part of this amazing generation... Cat StevensDan FogelbergBob DylanBilly JoelElton John are just a few of the many names that come to mind when I think of this golden era. Here is my tribute to one of the legendary composers of the 70s: James Taylor's "You've Got a Friend". The main challenge of the work is to keep the famous melody in center stage and all the other voices well in the background so as to give the illusion of 2 guitars playing. The proper use of levers will make the playing smooth and error free and you will see how extensively levers are used in You've Got a Friend..
