Hi all, it's Mike from Guitar Tricks, teaching you "Good Year For The Roses" as made famous by Elvis Costello. This is an early 80s hit country song that we'll learn campfire style on acoustic guitar. Any acoustic guitar is suitable to learn this song.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about steady acoustic strumming, open chords, and dynamics.

We are in the key of A, a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 98 bpm.
