Sweet Home Alabama Chords for Guitar

This lesson will teach you the Sweet Home Alabama chords for the guitar. This is one of those super popular guitar songs that most people will recognize. In fact, most people will probably recognize this song from just the chords and the picking pattern, even without playing the riffs.

In this lesson, Colin teaches the chords and the picking pattern, and although we’ll save the riffs for another lesson, if you watch close you can pick up a few ideas for those too.

The basic guitar chords are D, C and G, with an F major in there as well.

Have fun with this one!
