Townes Van Zandt – If I Needed You
Learn how to play Townes Van Zandt – If I Needed You note-for-note on guitar.
Difficulty level: Intermediate
Barre chords: No
Thumb over chords: No
Playing Style: Fingerpicked (Travis picked)
This lesson teaches Townes’ guitar part from the Live at the Old Quarter recording. The lesson is broken into 3 videos because, although the main song / verse part is consistent and simple, the intro and interlude are both very long and don’t follow any consistent picking pattern. That means that those who want to learn note-for-note what he’s playing are going to have to get down in the trenches and go through it bar-by-bar, and that’s what we do in this lesson.
