GeekDad Guitar Lesson: “Starship Trooper” by Yes

Reading Time: 1 minute

Yes, the iconic progressive rock band of the 70′s, may also be one of the geekiest bands of all time. It takes a special breed of geek musicians to compose rock songs that consistently clock in at over 15 minutes. Their lyrics were equally geeky, including this song that shares a title with the famous science fiction novel by Robert Heinlein.

This lesson focuses on the outro section of the song that features extended chords that utilize common open strings.
