What's up everybody, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks teaching you "Amarillo By Morning", as made famous by George Strait. This is an old-school country classic that features some steady acoustic rhythms and great electric guitar augmentations.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about open chords, barre chords, dynamics, steady 8th note strumming, chord arpeggiation and country-style fills. This is a typical classic country "hard knocks" song, so we'll play it like we are losing money in our rodeo careers!

We are in the key of D with a key change to E, a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 121 bpm.
