Last night for some reason, I worked on learning “Gatekeeper” by Feist. This song has been in my head lately along with “Secret Heart.”
First I worked with the recording for a while. I found some of the chords a bit ambiguous. Then I watched her play it on Youtube and realized that I wasn’t getting it quite right. I found a tab transcription of her chord positions on the guitar neck and all gradually became clear.
I wrote out a rough draft of the melody which I quite like.Â This morning I got up and copied it in a clearer hand.
