The version used for this lesson is the one from the BBC Live concert (available on Youtube) that features Crosby playing solo acoustic guitar with vocal harmonies by Graham Nash.
The song is broken down into multiple sections to help with learning it a bit at a time, but in fact there isn’t a great deal to learn.
