John Prine Guitar Lessons
Learn how to play the songs by John Prine note-for-note on guitar with The John Prine Guitar Lessons. Each lesson includes the playthru, video lesson, songsheet with chords and tab.
John Prine’s down-to-earth country/folk style musings on the world almost defined the Americana genre from the moment his first album hit the stores. That album was so good that four of its tracks are included in this collection.
You’ll get well-acquanted with his guitar style as you learn each of these pieces. They’re not especially challenging but they reward players and listeners alike because of the greatness of the songs and the way the guitar accompaniment complements the simple, earthy qualities of the songs.
You’ll find some strummers and some pickers amongst these songs. Whenever he fingerpicks he always falls back on his favourite Travis picking style.
So if you’re a Prine fan, or a guitar newbie looking for some legitimate songs that are likely to be within your ability level, this is the set for you.
Click on any of the song titles to see a clip from the start of the lesson. (The free one you can download in its entirety.)
You’ll receive at least two videos per song, one lesson and one performance-standard play-through. You’ll also receive the chords/lyrics and guitar tabs as PDF files.
The videos are mp4 format and should play on PC’s, Macs and most mobile devices.
They will download as Zip files. If you don’t have a Zip program on your PC you’ll need to install one to open the file. I use Zipeg which you can get free, here.
