What's up everyone, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks teaching you "I've Been Everywhere", as made famous by Johnny Cash. This is an absolute classic country tune that we’ll learn campfire style on an acoustic guitar. Any acoustic guitar is suitable for this tutorial, but one with a brighter tone will help cut through the mix if you're playing the song with a band.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about open chords, cut time feel, and incorporate a few single note runs into our chord strums.

We are in the key of E, a 2/2 time signature (or cut time), at a tempo of 112 bpm.
