How to Play No Woman, No Cry Bob Marley – Guitar Lesson

A reggae song popularized by legendary artist Bob Marley & the Wailers. A cool trivia about the song is that when the demo was recorded in London for Island Records in 1973, it was a Gospel version with the piano riff as the primary instrument (the version remained unreleased). It was however recorded and released in 1974 as a reggae song when it was included in the band’s “Natty Dread” album. The live version recorded in 1975 that was part of the album “Live!” was released as a single and it became the most popular version. Although the song was said to may have been written by Bob Marley (or just the melody of the song), the credits were given to Marley’s friend, Vincent Ford, who ran a soup kitchen in Trenchtown, the ghetto of Kingston, Jamaica where the former grew up. The royalty received for the song helped keep the soup kitchen running.
