SoTD: The Decemberists “Crane Wife 3”

I’ve been fiddling with my acoustic guitar again after not having touched it in quite a long time.  I never really got anywhere with it other than working on chord progressions that never really worked their way into my muscle memory.  After playing daily for a couple of years and not progressing past playing A-D-A-E with a 30 second pause in between each chord, I got discouraged and quit.  The inspiration to play again has hit me out of nowhere, and I’ve decided to give myself a goal; I want to learn to play Crane Wife 3 passably.  It’s not terribly complicated, the whole song is D-A-G D-A-G over and over again.  I think I can handle that.  I’ve already spent enough time on it today that the fingers of my fret hand are burning and it’s hard to type.  We’ll see if I get anywhere or if I just get frustrated again and set it aside.
