ME & BOBBY MCGEE

Tutorial by Lisa McCormick

Janis Joplin "Me & Bobby McGee"

Ahhh, the summer of 1971. It was a golden time, and on radios all over you would hear this soulful song. "Me and Bobby McGee" was written by Kris Kristofferson, and Janis Joplin recorded it and made it a huge hit. Lisa McCormick will teach you the chords and strumming to this one, in a solo guitar version. And being a fabulous pro singer to boot, she adds the vocals to this too!

Get your love beads on and learn to play this fun and easy classic. We opted for a simple approach to this song, so we'll be delving into a solo guitar version by Janis Joplin. We'll look at the chords, strumming patterns, and guitar work...and we'll also look at the overall song structure, and what it is that makes this "cinematic" country song "tick".
