Black Horse & The Cherry Tree

As made famous by: KT Tunstall

Lesson Info

"Black Horse and The Cherry Tree" is a hit from the mid 2000s, made famous by KT Tunstall. This high energy but simple track features some really cool rhythm guitar techniques and percussive tricks you can do on the acoustic. The verses are just 2 chords that use a Bo Diddley type of N'awlins "second line" groove along with the percussive techniques to drive the song, while the choruses are just three simple, familiar chords played in a typical strumming pattern. I'll show you how to play the percussive techniques that really propel the song in the verses, the chords and strumming, and finish with a play along.
