This post is tutorial – how to play Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry song. This a classic of reggae music that was written by Bob Marley and The Wailers. This song appeared on album Natty Dread in 1974 and the live version on album Live! in 1975. The original unreleased version was played in piano only. “No Woman, No Cry” (by Marley & the Wailers) set number 37 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
The lyric of the song is trying to cheer up a woman not to cry. “No, woman, nuh cry” – is an original pronunciation in Jamaican Patois. “Nuh” – is “Don’t” in English. Anyway, this song is about living in ghetto and consoling a woman that everything will be fine – just believe in it.
