Hi everybody, this is Tom Finch for Guitar Tricks and in this tutorial I will teach you how to play "Ventura Highway", as recorded by America in 1972. This up-beat acoustic rock song is driven by a catchy harmonized guitar motif and very energetic rhythm guitars.

We'll talk about gear and tone, we'll learn the intro melody/motif, the verse, chorus, post-chorus, and the outro.

The song is in 4/4 time with a quarter-note of 126 bpm, let's get started!
