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!
Amazing how a short, quick lesson can provide hours, days and weeks of practice. Love it!
Great Lesson, quick and easy. I watched other websites teaching the same song had me confused, now it is clear as the blue sky.
Thank you! I always liked that song.
Sweet and simple..Love it
Just dropped in to seem what my email condition is in and snagged this tip from, well, Jonathan Boettcher. Took a few minutes with my ole Yamaha and is big fun. Strum on!!! Bink
You make it seem easy but your clear and simple instructions. Jane
I’ve played this song before. But now I can play it better.
Thanks for the details. I needed that!
