Townes Van Zandt Guitar Lessons
Learn how to play the songs by Townes Van Zandt note-for-note on guitar with The Townes Van Zandt Guitar Lessons. Each lesson includes the playthru, video lesson, songsheet with chords and tab.
One of the most poetic and melancholic of songwriters, Townes Van Zandt’s songs seemed to reflect his own troubles more than almost any other writer.
In this collection of Townes Van Zandt guitar lessons you’ll learn exactly how he played the guitar accompaniments to these songs. Many of them are taken from the versions on the Live at Old Quarter album, which showed us how he accompanied these songs when backed by just his own acoustic guitar.
Much more than just the chords, you’ll get the capo positions, exact picking patterns, variations, licks and riffs that he incorporates on each song.
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.
