Este período de la creatividad produjo algunas de sus canciones más elaboradas, la mayoría de los cuales no puede parecer adaptables a jugar en solitario y cantando. Sin embargo, la mayoría de ellos se ubicó en el ser canciones de guitarra simples. Strawberry Fields para siempre, iniciado por Juan cuando estaba filmando una película en España, comenzó de esta manera y tenemos la suerte de tener acceso a algunas grabaciones muy tempranos como Juan estaba en el hábito de registrar todas sus ideas que se desarrollaron. Esta lección combina algunas versiones, pero se toma su mayoría de la largada como Take 1, en Anthology 2, con la adición de la introducción arreglado para guitarra.

Muchas de las canciones de los Beatles hacen grandes canciones de fogata y podemos elaborarlo * Salida * es una excelente adición a nuestra biblioteca. Tan simple como muchas de sus canciones son, más o menos cada uno tiene algunos giros y vueltas poco comunes que ofrecen grandes oportunidades de aprendizaje.

Ambas partes se abordan en esta lección con los arpegios está hecho de digitación y la sección de blues con la técnica flatpicking estándar.

4) Estaré detrás

Estaré detrás es otro ejemplo de un gran Beatles melodía que es en su mayoría rasgueando pero incluye una mano inteligente de apertura, así como los cambios en la tonalidad de mayor a menor, a diferencia de cualquier otra cosa músicos de rock estaban haciendo en ese momento.

5) Estoy Buscando a través de usted

Rubber Soul incluyó muchas canciones orientadas acústicos y Pablo Estoy mirando a través Usted fue uno de los que tenía un buen folk-oscilación sienten a la misma. Esta lección cubre la manera en que se jugó en esa versión original, así como una toma descartada antes de que apareció en The Beatles Anthology 2 a mediados de la década de 1990. Esa versión tiene más de un toque de blues a la misma. La lección también incluye un relleno de órganos corta que encaja muy bien en un acorde G prescrito. Nivel 4

6) In My Life

En mi vida que podría considerarse la primera canción de tomar los Beatles a un nivel superior como compositores. Parece que es un poco más de colaboración que la mayoría de sus canciones, pero Juan y de Pablo recuerdos de sus inicios difieren algo. En esta lección nos fijamos en un acompañamiento de ritmo básico y apertura lamer el ejemplo de George, así como un acompañamiento un poco más complejo que el solo de teclado.

7) Let It Be

Let It Be es una gran rasgueo y sintonizar el canto con una progresión de acordes que es un montón de diversión para practicar tocando cables utilizando la escala pentatónica mayor.

La guitarra es tocada con un capo en el 5to traste, creando un sonido un tanto delicada. Esta lección incluye el acompañamiento de guitarra, así como la corta ventaja incorporada en un acorde Solo.

9) Penny Lane

Una canción que a primera vista no parece muy jugable, Penny Lane se puede hacer que la incorporen a una tecla de usar la guitarra (re mayor), y centrándose más en la parte de bajo movimiento en lugar de cambios de acordes rápidos.

10) Con un poco de ayuda de mis Amigos

Hay muchos matices en la versión grabada de con un poco de ayuda de mis amigos que son muy difíciles de incorporar en una versión acompañamiento de guitarra solista.

Jethro Tull Guitar lessons Package
Jethro Tull Package - Haga clic Da Pico para aprender más ...
Gratis Lecciones de guitarra eléctrica acústica Videos Online

Una de las bandas más interesantes para salir de la década de 1960 fue el grupo rotativo de Ian Anderson de músicos ingleses conocidos como Jethro Tull. La banda comenzó en una dirección de blues, pero luego se dirigió a un mundo desconocido que podría ser considerado progresivo Folk. Flauta y virtuoso de la guitarra acústica habilidades de Anderson combinan a la perfección con estilos de la guitarra eléctrica de Martin Barre y cortaron un camino muy distintivo. Este conjunto de lecciones se centra sobre todo en algunas de las obras maestras acústicas con unos rockeros tirado en una buena medida.

1) We Used To Know

We Used To Know fue lanzado el segundo álbum de Jethro Tull, Stand Up, ya que estaban empezando a salir de sus raíces de blues y en una dirección más progresista. Cuenta con una progresión de acordes interesantes, ya que utiliza muchos acordes disponibles sólo en la escala menor melódica. Esta lección de la guitarra explica las relaciones entre las cuerdas, tocando en 6/8, y una manera de añadir una segunda parte de la guitarra usando acordes parciales hasta el cuello. Cualquier similitud con Hotel California (escritas muchos años después) es pura coincidencia.

2) Aqualung

Aqualung era una de las primeras canciones (y álbumes) para poner realmente atención a Jethro Tull y su intrépido líder, Ian Anderson. Esta breve lección Balón por encima del riff principal y juego de los siguientes acordes de la energía, así como el acompañamiento de la guitarra acústica a la sección media de la canción. Nivel 5

3) Himno 43

Himno 43 fue escrito por Ian Anderson y puesto en libertad en el clásico álbum de Jethro Tull Aqualung en 1971. El álbum consta de un amplio rango de sonidos y estilos, y esta canción se basa en un riff simple, algunos cambios de acordes sencillos, y un par de pequeña y bonita guitarra llena. La mayoría de las canciones de Ian Anderson escribe, y en especial sus canciones de guitarra acústica, son muy difíciles. Himno 43 es más de una canción de la guitarra eléctrica y de esta lección de guitarra de vídeo se divide en cuatro partes, que incluyen un vistazo de cerca a los acordes y técnicas de la mano izquierda, a una avería, sección por sección, y una obra de teatro a lo largo del segmento con un metrónomo.

4) Esta Hecho

Aqualung contó con un buen número de canciones a base de riff y por mí, como Himno de 43 años, es otro con cambios de acordes sencillos, un riff asesino, con un puente pastoral lanzado adentro para un poco de variedad. Esta lección examina algunas de las adiciones comunes Ian Anderson se suma a sus partes de guitarra del ritmo y un aspecto distinto en la forma en que ahora lo realiza en vivo, en una tonalidad diferente a la original.

5) Wond'ring Aloud

Wond'ring Aloud es una canción balada / folk hermoso enclavado en el medio de Aqualung, de Jethro Tull. Es un escaparate perfecto para el estilo de la guitarra exquisita de Ian Anderson. Esta canción es suave en 3/4 de hora y cuenta con algunas medidas simples de rasgueo, algunas carreras de conexión de las notas bajas, un gran uso de los hammer-ons y pull-offs, y algunas síncopas muy complejas que la hacen muy difícil. Una carta de acordes simples se incluye para una versión que es muy jugable por estudiantes principiantes de guitarra, así como ficha detallada que es muy preciso a la versión actual enseñado en la lección.

6) Mother Goose

Uno de los más intrincados canciones de guitarra acústica de Aqualung de Jethro Tull es Mother Goose. Se trata de Ian Anderson en su intrincada y caprichosa mejor. La canción se juega con un capo en el quinto traste, ayudando a crear una de sus sonidos de firma, y ​​utiliza algunas fáciles, si de vez en cuando los acordes inusuales. Los principales retos en la canción son la técnica de cosecha alterna rápida y precisa, y el gran uso de la síncopa fuera de compás.

7) Locomotive Breath

Locomotive Breath, de Aqualung, es una gran canción para aprender a tocar con la técnica de movimiento de la mano derecha constante. ¿De verdad sólo tiene que golpear un acorde con acento en la primera tiempo del compás y luego mantener un flujo constante de corcheas jugado con percusión (silenciando las cuerdas). También le da la oportunidad de practicar acordes de la barra de la forma A Major, uno de los más difíciles para muchas personas.

8) Thick As A Brick

Una canción que hemos previsto para completar una lección sobre desde el primer día en TotallyGuitars es Thick As A Brick by Ian Anderson y su alter ego, Jethro Tull. Cuenta con muy intrincado y flatpicking rápida con la síncopa complejo, todo lo cual debe continuar cuando el canto entra, y eso es todo sólo en los primeros 30 segundos. El resto de la Parte 1 de esta obra maestra de 45 minutos es muy divertido de jugar y presentará todo un reto para los guitarristas, incluso muy logradas, aunque gran parte de la canción es sencilla rasgueo. Aunque esto deberá ser considerado como una lección de guitarra avanzada, que puede ser muy accesible a los estudiantes intermedios de la guitarra si trabajan en cada parte muy lentamente. La lección incluye un juego completo a través de e instrucción detallada sobre cada una de las partes, una lección de 60 minutos en una canción de 3 minutos.

9) Living In The Past

Vivir en el pasado fue lanzado como single en el Reino Unido en 1969, pero se convirtió en el primer Top 40 hit de Jethro Tull en los EE.UU. cuando fue lanzado en 1972. Es uno de un número muy pequeño de canciones escritas en 5/4 y la lección alto rasgueo en este momento muy ampliamente. También utiliza acordes de la barra exclusivamente en lo alto de la nuca, cambiando rápidamente. Se puede jugar con la versión de 4 cuerdas de los acordes de la barra comunes y este enfoque está cubierto también.

10) Patinaje lejos

A estas alturas todo el mundo debe ser consciente de los increíbles talentos de Ian Anderson, en muchos niveles. Patinaje Away (On The Thin Ice Of A New Day) * tendría que ser considerado como uno de sus clásicos de guitarra acústica. La canción fue lanzada en 1974 en la Guerra Niño Jethro Tull álbum y es una de las obras maestras más complejas y muy sincopados de Ian. Esta lección detallada alto la guitarra y las partes vocales, así como la forma de combinarlos en una gran presentación en solitario.

And I Love Her es una de nuestras más solicitadas canciones de los Beatles. Esta lección Target varias partes enseña tanto la parte de guitarra rítmica y un breve vistazo a la ventaja de George.

Cumpleaños es un ejemplo clásico de tomar un sencillo riff, colocándolo en un formato de blues de 12 compases, añadiendo algunas voces pegadizas sobre una progresión de acordes corto, tirar un poco de descanso tambor y relleno guitarra principal, y la creación de una gran roca y rodar en un cuestión de un par de días.

También incluye un cantar y algunos consejos sobre convirtiéndolo en un tema instrumental por escoger la melodía, aunque muchos de los detalles específicos se dejan hasta el estudiante.

4) Voy a seguir el sol

Voy a seguir el sol es una canción de Paul McCartney muy temprano con una progresión de acordes muy sencillos y de ejecución corto.

6) Julia

En 1968 los Beatles aprendieron un poco sobre fingerpicking de Donovan mientras estaban en la India por un corto tiempo. Esto dio lugar a un sonido mucho más refinada guitarra por un par de canciones en el 'White Album', incluyendo Julia de John Lennon. Esta lección usa alternando patrón fingerpicking de John repetitivo bajo con algunas voces de acordes inusuales, y muestra exactamente cómo jugó el original, incluyendo una cejilla en el segundo traste.

7) Strawberry Fields para siempre

By late 1966 the Beatles were into heavy production and processing in the studio, being free to spend as much time as they wanted on any particular song. This period of creativity produced some of their most elaborate songs, most of which might not seem adaptable to playing solo and singing. However, most of them started off being simple guitar songs. Strawberry Fields Forever, started by John when he was shooting a movie in Spain, began this way and we are fortunate to have access to some very early recordings as John was in the habit of recording all his ideas as they developed. This lesson combines a few versions but is mostly taken from the one released as Take 1, on Anthology 2, with the addition of the introduction arranged for solo guitar.

8) Ticket To Ride

Another entry in our shorter series is Ticket To Ride also from Help. This is a good example of how a songwriter (Paul McCartney) can take a very simple melodic riff derived from a chord, and craft a brilliant piece of pop. A few barre chords are needed but otherwise this is a very accessible tune.

9) We Can Work It Out

Many of the Beatles songs make great Campfire songs and We Can Work It *Out*is an excellent addition to our library. As simple as many of their tunes are, pretty much every one has some unusual twists and turns that offer great learning opportunities. We Can Work It Out has a very interesting rhythmic change, as well as some chords with unusual bass notes. We even attempt a multi-fret barre at one point.

10) While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Another one of the top requested lesson here at TG was While My Guitar Gently Weeps, by George Harrison. The song first appeared on the Beatles' White Album, officially called The Beatles, and this lesson looks at the rhythm guitar part to that that version, as well as George's acoustic demo version that appeared on Anthology 3.

Free Acoustic Electric Guitar Lessons Videos Online

Our third package of Beatles songs continues with a varied mix of acoustic classics, riff-based rockers, sentimental ballads, and some 1960s psychedelic sounds.

Volumen 3

1) Here Comes The Sun

Here Comes The Sun is a lesson we have had a partial version of here at TG since the early days. Neil has finally put together the complete version for our Target Program. The song was written by George Harrison in Eric Clapton's garden, as the winter of 1969 was turning to spring in England. This lesson goes into detail about the techniques George used to create this acoustic masterpiece.

2) I Feel Fine

I Feel Fine is mostly a simple, but effective riff derived from the blues scale and applied to a modified 12-bar format. This song is also famous for being the first to use controlled feedback on a recording. Level6

3) I Want You

I Want You is a song with two distinct personalities, a gritty, bluesy section where the lead guitar doubles John's vocal, and a semi-classical keyboard arpeggio with a somewhat sinister sound. Both parts are addressed in this lesson with the arpeggios being done fingerstyle and the bluesy section with standard flatpicking technique.

4) I'll Be Back

I'll Be Back is another example of a great Beatles tune that is mostly strumming but includes a clever opening lick, as well as shifts in tonality from major to minor, unlike anything else rock musicians were doing at the time.

5) I'm Looking Through You

Rubber Soul included many acoustic oriented songs and Paul's I'm Looking Through You was one of those that had a nice folk-swing feel to it. This lesson covers the way it was played on that original release, as well as an earlier outtake that appeared on Beatles Anthology 2 in the mid-1990s. That version had more of a bluesy feel to it. The lesson also includes a short organ fill that fits nicely into a barred G chord. Nivel 4

6) In My Life

In My Life might be considered the first song to take the Beatles to a higher level as songwriters. It appears to be a little more collaborative than most of their songs but John and Paul's recollections of its beginnings differ somewhat. In this lesson we look at a basic rhythm accompaniment and George's opening lead lick, as well as a slightly more complex accompaniment to the keyboard solo.

7) Let It Be

Let It Be is a great strumming and singing tune with a chord progression that is a lot of fun to practice playing leads using the Major Pentatonic scale. This 4-Part TARGET lesson covers the rhythm guitar part and some of the piano fills, as well as a discussion on lead playing in general.

8) Michelle

Our other song from Paul's 1st solo album, Duncan is a straightforward fingerpicking tune, similar to April Come She Will and The Boxer, although a bit faster. The lesson also includes a solo guitar arrangement of the instrumental section, originally played on wooden flutes or recorders.

10. American Tune
Album: Paul Simon – There Goes Rhymin' Simon

From Paul's 2nd solo album, There Goes Rhymin' Simon, American Tune uses mostly open chords in the key of C. The picking patterns can be done a few different ways and the lesson includes a segment that is more Campfire style, using 2 simple accompaniment patterns, as well as a more detailed segment on branching out into some of the varied and improvised techniques that really set Paul Simon apart from most other singer/songwriters.

Mississippi John Hurt Guitar Lesson Package

Free Acoustic Electric Guitar Lessons Videos Online

Mississippi John Hurt was one of the most popular and influential guitarists in the Country Blues Style. His playing was graceful and complemented his gentle voice perfectly. Most of his songs featured Travis-style alternate bass picking, although he was generally not concerned with traditional harmony or establishing consistent patterns, as much as creating a solid and fascinating accompaniment to his songs. He commonly played in 4 different keys, and in this package we look at an example of each one, as well as a very basic instrumental to get started.

We start with Shake That Thing, a simple group of blues licks in the key of G. If you have a bit of experience with the Travis technique you should have little trouble getting this down and heading into his more complicated tunes. This is also a good place to start learning the alternating technique if you have not tried it before. Nivel 2

Stagolee is in the key of D and uses the 3 major chords in that key- D, G and A. It is a somewhat unusual form that is 11 bars long and uses melody notes that are all easy to reach within the chord shapes. Nivel 3

No hay ningún Tellin 'nos introduce en la llave de C, donde se introduce la técnica de utilizar el pulgar izquierdo para trastear la cuerda 6 ^ th para F acordes. Se encuentra en una forma popular convencional después de una progresión de 16 bar y presenta un desafío para coordinar el juego con el canto. Nivel 4 '

Tomamos otro viaje a la tonalidad de sol con Got The Blues, puedo estar satisfecho. En esta melodía se añade un par de firmas de John sonidos de acordes parciales hasta el cuello. También es bastante difícil de tocar y cantar, ya que es bastante rápido y realmente necesita algunos licks de blues jugado junto con las voces. Nivel 6

Completamos este paquete con una de sus canciones más complejas, Candy Man Blues. Esto está en la clave de A y cuenta con un buen número de los acordes del cuello en la parte solista. También es un ejemplo de cómo es más importante que hay propósito armónica el ritmo constante de las notas graves, lo que significa que con frecuencia utiliza las notas de bajos abiertos disponibles, independientemente de la forma en que se relacionan con el acorde. Nivel 6

1) Dave Matthews Band - desplome en mí 1996

Desplome en mí por Dave Matthews es un ejemplo de una canción que utiliza un acorde zumbido con una línea de bajo ligeramente en movimiento para crear un acompañamiento interesante. El acorde zumbido es sólo un E5 (acorde de la energía) y las notas graves cambie con un ritmo sincopado. Al igual que en muchas de las canciones de Dave, la digitación de acordes es un poco elástica pero la lección se centra en contar con cuidado para obtener las notas graves en los lugares correctos. Nivel 5

2) Extreme - More Than Words 1990

Más que palabras, por Extreme cuenta con una técnica interesante, pero difícil para la mano derecha. Es un estilo de percusión de juego que requiere un ritmo constante similar a un patrón de rasgueo. La canción fue escrita por Nuno Bettencourt y Gary Cherone y apareció por primera vez en el segundo álbum Extreme Pornografitti, en 1990.

3) Metallica - Nothing Else Matters 1992

Nothing Else Matters, como muchas canciones de Metallica incluye una gran introducción, así como una progresión de acordes simples como el acompañamiento básico para las voces y las piezas de plomo. Esta lección de 1 parte rompe el estilo de la guitarra picking arpegio clásica en la introducción, así como las partes de guitarra rítmica a los versos y coros.

4) Nirvana - Come As You Are 1992

Nirvana entró en escena a principios de 1990 y fue una parte importante del movimiento grunge, que comenzó en el noroeste del Pacífico, en parte inspirado en algunas de las canciones y estilos de Neil Young. Kurt Cobain escribió y cantó algunas canciones muy básicas, la mayoría de los cuales son interesantes progresiones de acordes, junto con algunos riffs interesantes. Come As You Are es un gran ejemplo de esto, ya que comienza con un riff simple que es seguido con un conjunto de 2-tocan los acordes con cejilla. It is important to play the riff with the alternating picking technique, and the barre chords could even be reduced to power chords, making this song even a little easier to play.

5) Pearl Jam – Better Man 1994

Pearl Jam is band that came of age in the 1990s and their 1994 album Vitalogy included Better Man, a song Eddie Vedder wrote when he was still a teenager.

6) Oasis – Wonderwall 1995

One of the biggest hits by Britpop band Oasis, Wonderwall is a simple strumming song featuring easy chord changes. This 1-part lesson gives you everything you need to strum along with the band, as long as you have a capo at the second fret. The lesson is done without the capo.

7) Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah 1994

Hallelujah was written by Leonard Cohen in the early 1980s but really came into the public's view with Jeff Buckley's 1994 recording done with a gentle arpeggio accompaniment in the key of G but capoed up the neck. It has been done by many other artists and this lesson looks at Kate Voegele's version as well, done in the key of C. This 11-part lesson includes a peek behind the scenes as Neil gives us a glimpse as to how he goes about working on the Play Through segments of our video lessons.

8) Queensryche – Silent Lucidity 1990

Silent Lucidity uses a modified arpeggio accompaniment pattern, occasionally with measures in an odd time signature, over relatively simple chords that include some open strings. We take a look at the picking in the verses, strumming and a picking pattern in the chorus, the accompaniment to the solo, and even the solo itself.

9) Radiohead – Karma Police 1997

Karma Police by Radiohead, from their 3rd album OK Computer, is a nice, simple strumming tune, although this haunting melody might be a bit melancholy for a sing-along. An easy strumming pattern and a few barre chords are all it takes.

10) REM – Losing My Religion 1991

This lesson on Losing My Religion presents the basic rhythm and strumming, as well as some ways to incorporate a bit of the mandolin parts into the intro and bridge.

Aparte de eso, es una canción rasgueo bastante básico con algunos cambios de acordes sincopados y un relleno de un poco de blues interpretado como parte del gancho vocal. Nivel 4

7) Poison - Every Rose Has Its Thorn 1988

Poison fue una de las bandas de glam metal / de pelo de los años 80 que tuvieron su mayor éxito con la balada Every Rose Has Its Thorn.

La década de 1980 nos trajo una maravilla de un golpe de Liverpool, El La de. Puede que no recuerde la banda, pero ahí va ella ha aparecido en numerosas películas en los últimos 20 años.

Gratis Lecciones de guitarra eléctrica acústica Videos Online

Este conjunto de canciones representa una colección de primeras melodías de David Crosby, Stephen Stills y Graham Nash, en su mayoría de sus discos editados en 1970. Un par de afinaciones alternativas se utilizan en la mitad de las canciones, que representan una amplia gama de niveles de dificultad.

1) 4 + 20

4 + 20 es uno de los más fáciles de canciones fingerpicking Steve Stills 'y un gran lugar para que los estudiantes de guitarra para empezar a exponerse a la familia D Modal de afinaciones. Esta lección utiliza la DADDAD tuning y mantiene un patrón de bajo alterna constante juega con el pulgar en un acompañamiento al estilo de Travis. La canción apareció originalmente en el álbum de CSNY Deja vu en 1970. Nivel 4

2) Suite: Judy Blue Eyes

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes is probably Stills' most recognized song and the one that really brought them into the spotlight, particularly after their appearance at Woodstock in 1969. It was written for contemporary songstress Judy Collins and consists of multiple sections (hence the 'Suite” part of the name), all of which include complex guitar parts and lush vocal harmonies. The guitar is in the D Modal tuning (DADDAD) and uses a variety of strumming and picking techniques. Some of the lesson addresses improvising in Stills' style in this open tuning. Level 6 Graham Nash is a master songwriter of tunes that require only some basic guitar techniques but ones that are really fun to play and sing.

3) Teach Your Children

Teach Your Children is a classic example of this. The song is a 3-chord progression in the key of D, with a step out into a 4^th chord in the chorus. A simple country-style strumming pattern is all that is necessary to make this a great song for beginners to sit around the campfire and play with friends. Nivel 2

4) Triad

David Crosby wrote Triad while he was still a member of the Byrds but it was a bit risque for them at the time. It was originally released by The Jefferson Airplane on Crown Of Creation but David continued to play it live at Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young concerts. His version first appeared on 4 Way Street, from their 1970 tour. This short lesson shows the chords and fills that accompany this haunting tune. Nivel 5

5) Love The One You're With

Love The One You're With is a Stephen Stills song that dates back to the early CSNY days and is frequently done with electric guitars or as a big production. Like many of Stills' songs, it started out as an acoustic tune in the D Modal tuning. Stills used DDDDAD but DADDAD is a more efficient and harmonically rich version that is used in this lesson. We also introduce a new twist with this lesson- that we are calling a 'Work It Out Lesson.' In the first segment Neil plays through the song and gives you hints about figuring it out yourself. The next segments present the 'Answers', with Breakdowns of the chords, the strumming, and the vocals. Nivel 5

6) Marrakesh Express

Marrakesh Express was written by Graham Nash and appeared on the CSN album in 1969. It is a relatively simple strumming song, although it moves along. It uses a couple of unusual chord voicings in the beginning, derived from a 'D' shape moved up the neck, but other than that it is standard chords, mostly in the key of G and a lot of fun to play. Nivel 4

7) Guinnevere

Una característica de muchas melodías David Crosby es el uso de afinaciones alteradas. Guinnevere es un gran ejemplo de cómo cambia el tono de algunos hilos, empieza jugando con las formas de acordes y sonidos, añade una melodía un tanto abstracto con armonías complejas, y crea música hermosa. La afinación es EBDGAD y utiliza un modelo de recogida de estilo de arpegio sobre algunas formas bastante simples, pero poco comunes de acordes. También no se ocupa de ejecutar algo de la misma manera dos veces, y como tal, recrea cada canción cada vez que juega. Tomamos este enfoque en esta lección y empezamos con algunos patrones específicos, pero miramos cambiando y variando sobre la marcha. Nivel 6

8) Deja Vu

Deja Vu es otra canción David Crosby que utiliza la sintonización EBDGAD (EM11), como el usado en Guinnevere. Éste se inicia con una introducción transversal recogido antes de establecerse en una serie de acordes de colores que son en su mayoría pulsaba, de manera improvisación. Traducción: No hablamos de cosas específicas de rasgueo, a pocos pensamientos acerca de mantener un ritmo constante, pero la creación de un estado de ánimo misterioso, como se pide en la canción. Nivel 6

9) Cruz del Sur

En 1982 Crosby, Stills & Nash lanzaron su álbum de la luz del día, que incluía a la Cruz del Sur, que se ha convertido en una parte estándar de sus conciertos. La canción utiliza únicamente tres acordes con un poco de un patrón de rasgueo sincopado por lo que es una gran lección de guitarra para principiantes a estudiantes de nivel intermedio. La lección incluye un acorde y el gráfico lírica y rompe el rasgueo hacia abajo para concentrarse en corcheas individuales. Nivel 4

10) Con la esperanza de poder hacer nada

Sin poder hacer nada esperamos es una canción clásica de digitación por Stephen Stills, que se publicó en 1969 en el primer Crosby, Stills & Nash álbum. Juego Stills 'es generalmente forma muy libre y que él nunca juega esta canción de la misma manera dos veces. La lección cubre la progresión de acordes y presenta un 'Campfire Version' que es fácil de rasgar, así como gran detalle en licks específicos y adiciones que utiliza Stills y cómo añadir sus propias variaciones de los patrones de fingerpicking, haciendo el arreglo de su cuenta. Nivel 6

Gratis Lecciones de guitarra eléctrica acústica Videos Online

La década de 1970 fueron el apogeo de lo que ahora se considera Classic Rock. Este paquete presenta lecciones detalladas sobre 10 de las canciones más populares Neil ha enseñado durante las últimas 4 décadas.

1) La Banda - El Peso

The Weight is one of the most popular songs by Robbie Robertson and The Band. It was released in 1969 on their 1st album, Music From Big Pink. The whimsical lyrics and instantly recognizable opening lick make it a lot of fun to play and sing, especially if you can round up some friends to sing along. This TARGET Short lesson includes playing it in the original key of A as well as transposed down to G. Level 4

2) Pure Prairie League – Amie

Amie was written by Pure Prairie League co-founder Craig Fuller and released on their 2nd album, Bustin' Out in 1972. It became a hit a few years later and is one of the top requested songs here at TG. This lesson goes over the chord progression, strumming patterns, and includes chapters on the Intro Lead, the Main Lead, and the Outro. Nivel 6

3) Kansas – Dust In The Wind

Dust In The Wind is a classic Travis-style fingerpicking song that is a 'must learn' lesson for all guitar students. It uses a steady alternating bass technique in a repetitive pattern. The main difficulty is getting it up to speed but it will come with practice. It appeared on Kansas's 1978 album Point Of Know Return. Nivel 4

4) Jerry Jeff Walker – Mr. Bojangles

Mr. Bojangles, written by Jerry Jeff Walker is a classic American folk- country tune, even though the subject matter and time signature are a bit unusual. It is in 3/4 time and features a descending bass line similar to These Days by Jackson Browne and America by Paul Simon. This is a great lesson for improving the accuracy of hitting individual bass notes as part of a strumming pattern. It has been covered by hundreds of artists, most notably the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Sammy Davis Jr., and even Bob Dylan. Nivel 4

5) Townes Van Zandt – Pancho And Lefty

Pancho And Lefty was written by Texas songwriter Townes Van Zandt and recorded on his 1972 album The Late Great Townes Van Zandt. It has been covered by many artists, including Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Joan Baez, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. Townes always said he didn't really write the song as much as discovered and channeled it, a frequent occurrence for talented songwriters. This Campfire lesson goes over the chord progression and encourages the student to improvise some fingerpicking patterns as the accompaniment. Nivel 5

6) The Hollies – Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress

Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress was written by Hollies singer Allan Clarke and a couple of British songwriters, Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway. It appeared on the Hollies album Distant Light, released in 1971. It features one of the greatest opening riffs in the history of Rock And Roll, followed by a driving, power chord-based progression. Another 'must learn' tune for students into the classic rock era. Nivel 6

7) Elvis Costello – Alison

Alison is one of Elvis Costello's best-known songs, it was released on his first album My Aim Is True, in 1977. Like many of his songs, the lyrics can be interpreted in multiple ways, and it is not likely that this is the love song that it might appear upon first listen. The song is in the key of E, and that means plenty of barre chords, including some 1-beat changes. The lesson uses a fingerstyle plucking technique in the intro, followed by finger strumming accompanying the verse and chorus. Nivel 5

8) Elton John – Madman Across The Water

Madman Across The Water was written by Elton John and his main lyricist, Bernie Taupin and was the title song from his 1971 album. It is one of his few songs that features acoustic guitar. The lesson goes over the basic riff and strumming accompaniment. Nivel 5

9) Blue Oyster Cult – Don't Fear The Reaper

Don't Fear The Reaper was written by Blue Oyster Cult guitarist and singer Buck Dharma. It appeared on their 1976 album Agents Of Fortune and was their first big hit. This is a great song for guitar players of any level. I make just about all of my students learn the opening riff early in their guitar lives. The chords can all be played with just 2 fingers, many of which are just power chords. It is also a good way to learn the technique of placing your left fingers down one at a time, in the order you need to play them, rather than slapping the whole chord down at once. Nivel 4

10) Billy Joel – It's Still Rock And Roll To Me

It's Still Rock And Roll To Me is one of the few Billy Joel songs that features the guitar rather than the piano. The song appeared on his 1980 album, Glass Houses and is written from the point-of-view of an aging artist who is pressured by his label or manager to get with the times. Typical of a Billy Joel song, It's Still Rock And Roll uses a wide range of chords, including some bar chords and some power chords. The power chords can be played using the common shuffle pattern that moves from the 5^th of the chord to the 6^th of the chord on beats 2 and 4 in each measure. The song opens with single bass notes played using the palm mute technique. Half way through the verse it starts strumming, then continues with a combination of the two techniques. Nivel 5

George Harrison Guitar Lesson Package

Free Acoustic Electric Guitar Lessons Videos Online

George Harrison had a long career after his life with the Beatles and he wrote and recorded a huge catalog of great songs. This set of songs covers much of his output all the way from his first album, All Things Must Pass, to his last, Brainwashed, works in a little of his beloved ukulele, and includes a song he wrote that was a hit for his buddy Ringo.

1) My Sweet Lord

My Sweet Lord was George's first solo hit in 1970 and was one of our leading vote getters in the Recommend A Lesson section here at TG for quite a while. This lesson covers strumming it in a couple of different keys, one using a capo, and also goes over the slide guitar parts that immediately identify the song. Nivel 5

2) If Not For You

If Not For You was written by Bob Dylan and appeared on his 1970 album New Morning. George Harrison, who had always been a fan of and was heavily influenced by Dylan, covered in it 1970 as well on his album All Things Must Pass. George's version added some slide guitar to the accompaniment, giving it a touch of his signature sound. The lesson goes over the chord progression as well as some of the slide fills. If you have not tried playing bottleneck or slide guitar you might start with the lesson on Amazing Grace. If Not For You is a good one for the second step of your bottleneck journey. Nivel 4

3) Isn't It A Pity

Isn't It A Pity was written by George in 1966 but was not recorded until he started working on his solo album All Things Must Pass, released in 1970. Neil's lesson shows a way to strum through the chord progression in the original key of G major,but also includes a look at George's acoustic demo version recorded in January 1969, when the Beatles were shooting the movie Let It Be. Nivel 5

4) Beware Of Darkness

All Things Must Pass was the album that really brought George Harrison's songs to the attention of the public. Released in 1970, just after the Beatles broke up, it was full of great songs, including Beware Of Darkness. The song was also recorded by Leon Russell at about the same time, and in 1996 was covered by the modern progressive rock band Spocks Beard. All Things Must Pass was produced with a very heavy hand by Phil Spector, but we are fortunate that George made some demos that were stripped down to just solo performances. Consequently, this song makes a great acoustic guitar lesson. It is played in the key of E, using quite a few barre chords, along with a couple of chords outside of the key, and the lesson includes a segment on transposing it to the key of B as well. Nivel 6

5) It Don't Come Easy

A song George wrote around the same time, It Don't Come Easy was given to his old mate Ringo and became one of his first solo releases, coming out in April 1971. It features a simple opening guitar lick, obviously much in George's style.. George and Ringo performed it live at the Concert For Bangla Desh later that year. It is a pretty basic strumming song with a distinctive opening lick. Nivel 4

6) Give Me Love

In 1973 George released the follow up to All Things Must Pass, Living In The Material World. It included his next hit, Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth), a song played with a capo at the third fret and mostly chords in the key of D. Many of George's songs feature unusual chord combinations and this is no exception. The strumming, on the other hand, is somewhat basic. The lesson includes a quick look at a piano fill that occurs in the chorus as well. Nivel 4

7) All Those Years Ago

George Harrison and his old band mates were masters of interesting chord progression, many times combining chords from multiple keys into one section of a song, and other times reaching out pretty far from conventional harmonic patterns. All Those Years Ago reaches outside the box a bit with the addition of a diminished, an augmented, and even a minor sixth chord. This guitar lesson focuses mostly on strumming the chords, although we also look at playing a shuffle-type riff with a bluesy lick, as well as a couple of segments on transposing it to a key different from the original. The song first appeared on his 1981 album Somewhere In England, and was written as George's tribute to John Lennon. Nivel 6

8) Handle With Care

In the 1980s George got together with some of his best buddies, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne, and put out a couple of great collaborative efforts as The Traveling Wilburys. Their first album, Volume 1, included George's song Handle With Care. It features an opening segment by George, followed by a section featuring Roy, and a 3rd part done by Tom, Bob and Jeff. The chords are very basic and the strumming can be simple as well, although we look at a pattern that includes double bass notes played on consecutive eighths, which adds a bit to the level of difficulty. Nivel 5

9) End Of the Line

A second Wilburys song, End Of the Line is well recognized because of a memorable video of the band performing the tune on a train. Many of the songs were true collaborations with parts written and sung by all members of the band. End Of The Line is a very basic strumming song but includes an intro that uses 3-string chords up the neck. These are from the D, A and E families and played on just the top 3 strings. Nivel 4

10) Between The Devil And the Deep Blue Sea

The album George was working on in his last days was Brainwashed, released posthumously in 2002. George had always been enamored by the sound of the ukulele and he included Between The Devil And the Deep Blue Sea on the album. Harold Arlen (Over The Rainbow) wrote this standard in 1932 and George played it on the ukulele in a very traditional manner. This lesson goes over the chord progression and strumming techniques for guitar, as well as how to get the ukulele sound on the guitar, and even how to play it on the ukulele. Nivel 6

songs from the 1960's guitar lesson package

Free Acoustic Electric Guitar Lessons Videos Online

The songs of the 1960s were as diverse as the times themselves. Folk, blues, jazz, pop, and rock styles had merged and emerged into many new sounds. Some of these, combined with some non-musical influences became the Psychedelic Sound. In this package we explore a wide range of hits from the time.

1) The Youngbloods – Get Together

Get Together is one of the most recognizable songs from the mid 1960s, and features the voice of Jesse Colin Young and his band, the Youngbloods. The lesson covers the campfire version, a couple of ways to play the opening lead, a bit about transposing to a key to better suite your voice, as well as details on creating a chord solo by combining the chords and melody. Nivel 4

2) The Turtles – Happy Together

Happy Together was the only Turtles song that hit #1 in the US, knocking out Penny Lane in 1967. The song is mostly a simple strumming tune but in this lesson we look at fingerpicking the distinctive intro. Nivel 4

3) The Mamas And Papas – California Dreamin'

California Dreamin' is another song that exemplifies the era of peace and love. Written by John Phillips shortly before forming The Mamas And The Papas, it was released in 1965 and is a great strumming and singing tune. Nivel 5

4) The Doors – Love Street

Jim Morrison penned the lyrics to *Love Street*watching hippies go by his house in Laurel Canyon in 1967. Guitarist Robby Krieger came up with a fascinating chord progression and melody that cycles through multiple keys. This guitar lesson includes a simple strumming accompaniment as well as an alternating fingerpicking one that is more like what Robby played. It is also quite a workout as it is best to play almost all the chords as barre chords. Love Street was released in 1968 on the Doors third album Waiting For The Sun. Nivel 6

5) Jefferson Airplane – White Rabbit

In 1967 the so-called 'Summer Of Love' took place in California, specifically in San Francisco. The Jefferson Airplane was one of the main bands that were part of a developing sound now considered Psychedelic Rock. *White Rabbit*was written by Grace Slick while she with another band, The Great Society, and it is certainly one most identified with the time. It uses an unusual set of 6 major chords set to a hypnotic, bolero – type rhythm, an eastern-influenced opening lead played by Jorma Kaukonen, and fantasy lyrics based on Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland. In the lesson we look at both the rhythm and lead guitar parts. Nivel 5

6) Donovan – Season Of The Witch

The psychedelic sound was not confined to the West Coast of California. Across the Atlantic, Donovan Leitch, who had already released two folk albums, became one of the first London musicians to adopt the sound and join the Flower Power brigade. His first recording with an electric guitar was *Season Of The Witch*, and although the ripples were not as big as the reaction to Dylan going electric, the times certainly were changing. This is really just a two-chord jam with almost improvised lyrics and the lesson talks about creating strumming patterns, transposing a chord progression to other keys, thoughts on lead playing using the Pentatonic Minor scale, and even includes a Jam Along segment. Nivel 4

7) Strawberry Alarm Clock – Incense And Peppermints

Much of the music we consider the soundtrack to the 'Summer Of Love' was created by bands based in Southern California. The Strawberry Alarm Clock might be classified by many as a 'one hit wonder' with their catchy tune *Incense And Peppermints*. With music written by Mark Weitz and Ed King (later of Lynyrd Skynyrd), its cryptic lyrics, heavy organ sound, and poppy background vocals epitomize the sound of Psychedelic Rock. It is a good example of many songs of the time that used disjointed chord progressions (not necessarily from a single key), many different parts, and layers of sound for a colorful effect. This lesson goes over the rhythm guitar and chord progressions. Nivel 5

8) The Animals – House Of The Rising Sun

House Of The Rising Sun is an old folk song that found new life in the 60s, particularly after Eric Burdon and The Animals recorded their dynamic version featuring the electric guitar playing a distorted arpeggio through the chord progression. This lesson looks at fingerpicking it acoustically but it transfers very nicely to the electric as well. Nivel 2

9) Iron Butterfly – In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

Iron Butterfly was a Southern California band formed in the mid-1960s who jumped on the heavy, psychedelic bandwagon and created one of the benchmark songs of the time, *In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. *It combined a catchy riff, a simple run, and a short chord progression with a classical organ intro and an extended jam with solos for each member into a classic rock masterpiece, although more from a historical perspective rather than musical virtuosity angle. In this lesson we look at the basic accom-paniment parts but also take a classical guitar look at playing the rapid arpeggio opening. This segment would probably rate at Level 8, but the main part of the lesson is Level 5.

10) The Byrds – Eight Miles High

One of the bands that really helped define the Psychedelic Sound of the Sixties was The Byrds. Their early line up with Roger (Jim) McGuinn, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, and Gene Clark produced a defining song of the era, Eight Miles High. The song featured McGuinn's 12-string Rickenbacker guitar, combined elements influenced by John Coltrane and Ravi Shankar, and really opened up the ears of the musical community. This lesson goes over the chord progression and a foray into improvising in the Dorian mode… definitely a mind-expanding lesson. Nivel 5

Lesson 3 introduces a song the key of A and adds the technique of Alternating Bass notes. Mississippi Blues #3 uses some hammer ons and passing bass notes between chords and is a bit more folk-blues, in the style of Mississippi John Hurt. This song is an example of a 24-bar progression, mainly because the first 8 measures are essentially repeated as the last 8 measures. It is a bit more advanced than the songs in Lesson 2 and would be considered a Level 4 song.

In Lesson 4 we look at Sand Dollar Blues, a 16-bar progression in the key of G. This uses the Alternating Bass technique as well, and introduces the idea of syncopated melody notes being played before the chord changes, an anticipation by musical definition. We also discuss chord inversions; chords with bass notes other than the root, sometimes known as 'slash' chords (D7/F#). Sand Dollar Blues is a Level 4 song and is similar to pieces by John Fahey and some simpler ones by Reverend Gary Davis.

Lesson 5, Summertime Strut is another 16-bar progression, but with a ragtime feel like more complex pieces by Reverend Gary Davis, Blind Blake, Blind Boy Fuller, and even a touch of Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant. This lesson is in the key of C and addresses the theory of using chords outside the key signature. It includes some quick changes and other left hand techniques that will require a little more time to master- stretching and moving separate fingers in different directions at the same time, and the option of using your left thumb to fret notes on the 6th string. It is a Level 5 song and completes Volume 1 of the Country Blues Guitar course.

Greg Lake has penned a handful of great songs for guitarists. He is of course best known as the bass player and voice of progressive rock pioneers Emerson, Lake& Palmer but his acoustic guitar songs are mini- masterpieces that feature complex and intricate techniques, as well as beautiful melodies. In this set of lessons we breakdown his five most requested and popular tunes.

We start at the beginning of ELP's catalog with Lucky Man. This is really a lesson for beginners as it uses just 4 open chords and a simple strumming pattern. This is a good song to work on coordinating singing with playing, as the rest of the lessons get a bit more complicated. Nivel 1

Continuing chronologically, we come to The Sage. This appeared on their live album 'Pictures At An Exhibition' , where most of the album was Keith Emerson's interpretation of the classic Mussorgsky piece but Greg composed this beautiful ballad. It uses mostly an arpeggio technique, very common in many of his songs, but includes a very challenging, classical instrumental section, which uses the hybrid picking technique of combining a pick with the fingers. Nivel 8

Their fourth album, Trilogy, included probably his most famous piece, From The Beginning. It features a couple of unusual chords and a percussive strumming accompaniment. This is followed by an arpeggio section that uses the standard alternating picking technique. It can be quite challenging to sing along with this style of accompaniment. Nivel 7

Still You Turn Me On was from their next album, Brain Salad Surgery and is played in Dropped D tuning. Greg does many of his songs, including this one, on a 12-string guitar but it sounds great on a 6- string as well. Like many of his songs, it uses unusual chord shapes along with an arpeggio accompaniment. Nivel 6

As ELP was winding down the first phase of their career in 1974, Greg recorded a solo single that has become a seasonal standard, I Believe In Father Christmas. This piece is also done in Dropped D and uses a simple set of 2-finger chords working their way down the neck. He plays this with the hybrid picking technique but it can be done with standard fingerstyle technique as well. Nivel 5

Jimmi Buffett Come Monday – Level 5

This is from Jimmy's 1974 album 'Living And Dying in 3/4 Time' and is typical of many of his tunes- mostly open chords, easy strumming, and easy to sing by many folks without real voices! This song includes a hybrid picking technique that is part arpeggio and part alternating bass, as well as transitions from picking to strumming and back, which are a sticky thing for many students.

Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes – Level 4

This was the title song from Jimmy's 1977 album that really took him out of the local Florida scene and brought him into the national spotlight. The album also featured Margaritaville. Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes is a pretty basic Campfire song in the key of D and includes a couple of barre chords. This lesson looks at a percussive strumming pattern and includes 3 short instrumental parts where the melody/lead is incorporated into the strumming.

A Pirate Looks At 40 – Level 4

From Jimmy's 1974 Album A1A, A Pirate Looks At 40 is an introspective ballad that follows a simple 12-Bar Progression in the key of G. This lesson includes various fingerpicking accompaniment techniques and really encourages the student to create their own arrangement with each performance. There is also a segment on playing it in an Open G Tuning, along with a look at the way Jack Johnson covered it.

Son Of A Son Of A Sailor – Level 4

In 1978 Jimmy Buffett released his 9th album, Son Of A Son Of A Sailor, following his breakthrough album Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes. This song is another great example of how Jimmy can take a simple progression, melody, and accompaniment and create a very catchy tune. The lesson focuses on using a pick and mostly a single- string arpeggio technique. We also take a look at playing the intro combining two guitar parts into one.

He Went To Paris – Level 4

One of his earlier songs, He Went To Paris is a song Jimmy wrote after meeting Spanish Civil War veteran Eddie Balchowsky. It appeared on his 1973 album A White Sport Coat And A Pink Crustacean. It follows (or started?) a typical Buffett formula of a one-part song, meaning a series of verses without any real chorus. It was also covered by Willie Nelson. This lesson features a simple fingerstyle accompaniment with a few variations.

Margaritaville – Level 4

Margaritaville would have to be the defining song of Jimmy Buffett's career, as well as a poignant commentary on the state of American culture. In any case, the song is very fun to play and would have to be considered a poster song for the term 'Campfire Song'. In this lesson we look at some variations in chord voicings and inversions that can be added to the chorus, as well as playing the intro and the lead in 2-part harmony.

A Chord Solo is an instrumental arrangement of a song that incorporates the chord progression, the melody, and the rhythm and wraps them up into something playable by a solo guitarist. They also make great instrumental sections to a song you are singing, much like the original recording might include a lead break. This set of lessons introduces some of the concepts and techniques to get you started on this journey. It is designed to teach you how to make your own arrangements, not just play some that you may have heard.

A Chord Solo is an instrumental arrangement of a song that incorporates the chord progression, the melody, and the rhythm and wraps them up into something playable by a solo guitarist. They also make great instrumental sections to a song you are singing, much like the original recording might include a lead break. This set of lessons introduces some of the concepts and techniques to get you started on this journey. It is designed to teach you how to make your own arrangements, not just play some that you may have heard.

Parte 1: Introducción

Neil talks a bit about how he first got into instrumental playing as a young guitar student. He gives some examples of songs that can be done this way, although really any song can be arranged into an instrumental.

Part 2: Components & Techniques

This chapter goes over basic components to a song, and how the player must have a very clear idea of each of them individually before they can combine them into a solo. We will be working with Lead Sheets; simply a page of music representing only the melody and chord progression. We then take a look at some basic accompaniment techniques, strumming and fingerpicking, and how they will be used for creating solo arrangements.

Part 3: Greensleeves – Strumming

The first step into Chord Solos is to take a simple melody and add in a simple strumming pattern. We do this with the old English melody Greensleeves.

Part 4: Greensleeves – Fingerpicking

The next step with Greensleeves is to work on a fingerpicking version. The song is in 3/4 time which makes the bass part of the fingerpicking not quite fit into an alternating bass pattern, but keeps it similar to the strumming version from the last chapter.

Part 5: Grandfather's Clock – Fingerpicking

Most fingerpicking arrangements are done in 4/4 time. We use the melody Grandfather's Clock to head in this direction. This does use a standard alternating bass pattern, and is how many of your own tunes will be done.

Part 6: Grandfather's Clock – Strumming

Using the same melody we look at a flatpicking version, a little more in the Bluegrass direction.

Part 7: Parting Thoughts

This chapter is just a few short reminders, maybe bullet points, to send you off and try some songs of your own. At this point many of the songs in the TARGET Program where Neil does a Chord Solo in his Play Through will make a lot more sense. How to create your own should be a little clearer and certainly approachable.

Waiting On A Friend is a fairly basic strumming song with a couple of notes added to C and F chords to create a little melody. This lesson goes over the simple rhythm accompaniment. Tab is included to the Chord Solo that Neil improvised in the Play Through segment.

4) Wild Horses

The Stones' recording of *Wild Horses*featured 3 guitars throughout the song, one acoustic guitar in standard tuning, another in open G (DGDGBD), and an electric playing mostly fills. This lesson looks at the basic rhythm part, playing some of the Open G parts, as well as a Chord Solo as Neil plays in the first segment.

5) You Can't Always Get What You Want

*You Can't Always Get What You Want*is really just a basic Campfire song and about as easy as it gets in the Rolling Stones' catalog. A few simple chords and a simple strumming pattern and you've got it. This lesson also talks about playing in different keys using a capo to create different sounds.

6) Bonus

The Bonus Songs in this set are from our series called *Intros, Riffs & Licks*. These lessons are usually between 5 and 10 minutes long and just go over the main distinctive or most recognizable part of a popular song. A Chord Chart and/or Tab is included, whatever is necessary, and many Rolling Stones songs would fall into this category. In this set of lessons we are including all the following songs:

Satisfacción
Brown Sugar
Honky Tonk Women
Jumpin 'Jack Flash
Start Me Up

This new lessons package includes songs from Fleetwood Mac and is 5 guitar lessons. Right now we are offering lifetime access to these lessons for a limited time. This video lesson series is expertly taught by Neil Hogan teaching you some of the best guitar songs of Fleetwood Mac. Includes tab, chart, and guitar pro files.

1) Oh Well

Oh Well is from the early days when Fleetwood Mac was a British Blues Band led by guitarist Peter Green. Its distinctive opening riff, as well as the rest of what was considered Oh Well Part 1 are covered in this lesson.

2) Rhiannon

Early Morning Rain was written by Gordon Lightfoot and recorded by Peter, Paul & Mary, effectively bringing Gordon up the ladder into public view. His first record for United Artists, Lightfoot, presented his versions of many of his early tunes. This song is really more of a Campfire song, using a basic strumming pattern and a simple set of three chords in the key of D. It is done in Dropped D Tuning. Nivel 3

2) If You Could Read My Mind

Gordon Lightfoot was a well-known songwriter in the mid 1960s but in 1970 he became a household name with the release of If You Could Read My Mind. It features a gentle, rolling arpeggio fingerpicking pattern, and a relatively easy set of chords backing a beautiful melody. This guitar lesson looks at Gordon's repetitive pattern as well as how to expand and improvise a bit around it. There is also a short interlude that incorporates the melody into the accompaniment. The song is fingered in the key of G but with a capo at the second fret, putting it in the key of A. The lesson is done without the capo. Nivel 6

3) Sundown

Sundown is one of Gordon Lightfoot's biggest hits, and easiest songs to play. It consists of just four chords and a very simple strumming pattern. Two of the chords are unusual voicings/fingerings of an E and a B chord and the other two are A and D. This tune brought Gordon back into the public eye after 3 years of only moderate success in the airwaves. Nivel 2

4) Carefree Highway

Carefree Highway is one of dozens (maybe even hundreds!) of great songs by Gordon Lightfoot. This Campfire Lesson goes through the chords in the key of E, which include a few from the barre families, and some thoughts on strumming patterns. Nivel 5

5) The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald

The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald was a big hit for Gordon Lightfoot, from his 1976 album Summertime Dream. The song is a recount of the sinking of the freighter on Lake Superior in 1975. The lesson is mostly strumming open chords but we take a look at the opening lead fill as well. Nivel 3

1) James Blunt – Same Mistake 2007

Same Mistake was the second single released from James Blunt's album All The Lost Souls. The video featured a very unusual camera technique and the song features a rapid arpeggio accompaniment, as well as some strumming. The original was done with a capo at the 3rd fret, and although the lesson is done without it, some of the uses of a capo are discussed. Nivel 5

2) Jason Mraz – I'm Yours 2008

I'm Yours is a very catchy tune by Jason Mraz that uses a heavily rhythmic and percussive strumming technique with a lot of barre chords, including one outside of the normal 'A' and 'E' families. Level 5.

3) John Mayer – Why Georgia 2003

John Mayer's Why Georgia is one of the more difficult songs we have here at TotallyGuitars. This song uses very elaborate, percussive picking, as well as a somewhat difficult filler lick over a relatively uncomfortable and unusual chord, and that's just the first 2 measures. The rest of the song gets easier, a little, but don't let that scare you off! Nivel 8

4) Dave Matthews – Where Are You Going 2002

Another great strumming song from Dave Matthews, Where Are You Going appeared on the Dave Matthews Band album Busted Stuff in 2002. It uses some of his typical extended chords, ones with notes outside the normal major, minor and seventh combinations, is strummed with a basic pattern hitting bass notes on beat one. The lesson presents the chords in tab and generally addresses the strumming without getting too specific. Nivel 5

5) Pearl Jam – Just Breathe 2009

Really a solo guitar song by Eddie Vedder, Just Breathe is a fingerpicking tune much like Dust In The Wind or Blackbird. One of the similarities is that the picking is easy but very fast. This was released in October 2009 on the Pearl Jam album Backspacer. Nivel 4

6) Ray LaMontagne – Beg Steal Or Borrow 2010

Ray LaMontagne recently hit the current scene with a throwback sound and look, along with some great songs. Beg Steal Or Borrow is pretty much a folky campfire song that just uses a steady strumming pattern over mostly open chords. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award in the US for 2010. Level 3

7) Tom Petty – I Should Have Known It 2010

This Lesson has an interesting history. Neil was very surprised and impressed with this recent Tom Petty song, I Should Have Known It, and also ran across a teaching competition going on at Ovation Guitars. He put together a short lesson on the song and entered the contest with it. For some unknown reason Ovation chose not to publish the entry but we are bringing it out for our members. Neil's lesson combines a couple of guitar parts into one that is done in a G6 tuning, lowering the 5th and 6th strings 1 step. It is a great example of a solid riff-based tune framed in a modified 12-bar blues format. Nivel 5

8) Train – Hey Soul Sister 2009

With the lesson on Hey, Soul Sister, we take a look at another very catchy song that is part of the current music scene. Lead singer Pat Monahan said they were trying to write something in the style of INXS but as it evolved he was not happy with the sound. Maybe it was because it followed the classic 'Pachelbel Progression', IV-vi-IV, also found in songs like Let It Be, With Or Without You, and Jason Mraz's I'm Yours, to mention a few of the thousands in this category. In any case, once band mate Espen Lind strummed it on the ukulele, he was convinced that they had found the right recipe. In this short lesson we look at chord voicings that sound much like the ukulele. Nivel 5

9) Incubus – Drive 2001

Drive is probably Incubus's biggest hit and released in late 2000 on their album Make Yourself. It is really just a solo acoustic accompaniment to a very melodic tune that uses a few unusual chord shapes. It also features some syncopated changes making the strumming a bit challenging as well. Nivel 4

10) Guster – Do You Love Me? 2010

Guster is another band that has been putting out some catchy tunes over the last decade, most of which could be considered Campfire Songs and feature acoustic guitars using simple strumming patterns. Their 2010 album Easy Wonderful included Do You Love Me, a great example of their up-beat pop sound. This lesson is done in a 'Work It Out' format, where the first few video segments focus on ear training and figuring out the chord progression yourself. If you decide to try this approach, I recommend not looking at the chart until you have gone through ear training segments. The entire song is taught completely and in the usual manner in the last segment. Nivel 3

Open G Tuning has been a favorite of guitar players going back to Robert Johnson and the early bluesmen, and still popular today thanks to people like John Fahey and Keith Richards. It is also one of the most common Slack Key tunings among Hawaiian guitar players where it is known as Taro Patch Tuning. This set of lessons includes mostly Neil's arrangements of intermediate-level songs.

1) Here Comes The Sun

Here Comes The Sun is of course George Harrison's classic from Abbey Road. This arrangement is in the Slack Key style using a steady alternating bass accompaniment.

2) Hula Blues

Hula Blues is a popular Hawaiian song from the first half of the 20^th century. This arrangement is based on one by Neil's friend Hall Kinnaman, who teaches guitar and ukulele on the island of Kauai. It features many of the signature licks we associate with the slack key sound.

3) Give Me Cornbread When I'm Hungry

John Fahey was once of the most influential American guitarists from the time he entered the music scene in the late 1950s. He played in many open tunings, generally with fairly simple chord shapes but complex picking patterns, and heavily inspired the next generation of players, notably Leo Kottke, among others. In this lesson we look at Give Me Cornbread When I'm Hungry. It features a few sections revolving around different chords in the key of G. The main point of this lesson is to take some of his ideas and change them around, really improvising and recreating the song every time you play it.

4) Buffalo Gals

Buffalo Gals is an American folk song from the mid-19^th century. Neil's arrangement makes for pretty simple chords and left hand moves. The right has one section using standard alternating bass technique but another using what he calls an eighth note roll, where there are only three bass notes in each measure, played in a syncopated pattern. Overall not too difficult, as long as you start very slowly and get it smooth before speeding it up.

5) Take Me Out To The Ball Game

Open G presents the opportunity to make fairly simple arrangements out of many traditional tunes. Neil has arranged Take Me Out To The Ball Game as an example of this. The song is in 3/4 time, using a modified alternating bass pattern, which makes it a little different and somewhat challenging at first.
