I'll be playing my vintage 00 martin steel string guitar today, but just about any guitar will work for this song, I'd use a clean tone if I were playing electric. We'll be using our capo on the 4th fret today, and taking a look at good capo placement, and also thinking about tuning issues that can come up with capo use.

If you are new to strumming I heartily recommend that you visit my tutorial "Better Strumming" here on Guitar Tricks. It includes the strum we will be using today, and give lots of detailed information on developing solid strumming technique. I'll take a minute in this lesson to discuss the following musical terms:

Harmonic cadence
V of V
Numbers system
