Only The Beginning Feature

This post will simply include a piece from the book ‘open chords made easy‘. If you have read the extracted lessons from the book, you should be able to read and play the piece.

This piece contains a chord chart and strumming guide.

The melody has also been included, although this is effectively a bonus and is not related to the lessons in this series.

Here is a recording of the song. Have a listen and then try to play it yourself.

I play guitar. I teach guitar. I like making music. I'm trying to build this site up to be a valuable resource for guitar students and teachers.
