Heroes: A lesson in memory of David Bowie

David Bowie was a one-of-a-kind artist who transformed music decade after decade through constant reinvention and experimentation. And through all those changes and countless performances, his music made an incredible impact on the lives of countless people throughout the world.

In memory of his unique artistry and life, I wanted to share how to play one of my favorite David Bowie songs, Heroes, from the album of the same name.
