What's up everybody, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks teaching you "Songbird" as made famous by Fleetwood Mac. This is a classic rock ballad that we'll learn on acoustic guitar, campfire style.

Any acoustic guitar is suitable for this tutorial. We'll also put a capo at the 3rd fret to facilitate playing the song with mostly open chord shapes.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about dynamics, syncopated strumming, and the use of a capo.

We're in the key of F, a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 94 bpm.
