David Crosby Guitar Lessons
Learn how to play the songs by David Crosby note-for-note on guitar with the David Crosby Guitar Lessons. Each lesson includes the playthru, video lesson, songsheet with chords and tab.
Coming out of The Byrds, Crosby almost immediately began creating music with Stephen Stills. When they were joined by Graham Nash, they knew the resullting three-part harmony was something very special.
But Crosby is a wonderful harmony singer in his own right, and the solo album If I Could Only Remember My Name shows off his talents as well as anything he made with his band mates.
Much of the material from this collection is drawn from that album and it reflects David’s musical sensibilities better than almost anything else. Full of hypnotic repetitive vamps, jazz-like in their sound, and layered over with vocals by one of the great voices of his generation, it’s a bona-fide masterpiece.
It’s not easy to find lessons teaching the authentic tunings and unusual chord shapes he uses. I hope that this collection fits a bit of a gap and gets you deep into the musical world of the great David Crosby.
