| September 16, 2013 | 3 Comments

Have you ever wanted to play a classic song that has some unusual chords that are easy to play? Well try Horse With No Name by America.

Horse With No Name. Guitar Strumming Lesson.

Apart from Em, the 4 chords used in this great song are not only unusual, but are very easy to master.

No more than 2 fingers are required at any one time, and, because they are all played in the open position, ring out beautifully, giving the song its distinctiveness that is so recognisable.

We have shown you this song for a variety of reasons, namely;

- It is relatively easy to play

- It is a classic

- Many guitarists play it incorrectly

– you will be able to play it accurately

- The chords are unusual

- The strumming pattern is relatively easy, but also has some techniques (such as palm muting) that give the song its flavour that will also enhance your skills

- If you can sing and play the guitar, you have another song to add to your repertoire

- The chords have great, complicated names, so you can impress your peers

- It is definitely fun As usual, the detailed videos will teach you how to execute the song, step by step, showing the chord shapes and rhythm patterns, which you can develop and embellish further as you become more familiar with the basics.

The only thing we’ve missed out is the guitar solo, so we’ll bank that for another time. Have fun!!!!

  1. Hi friends, fastidious paragraph and fastidious arguments
    commented here, I am truly enjoying by these.

  2. Hi, I do believe this is an excellent website. I stumbledupon it ;) I am going to return once again since i have
    bookmarked it. Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue
    to help other people.

  3. Learning to be thrifty in today’s economy will be a big help with your family grocery and clothing budget.
    Because the cost of operation can be so much less, places like
    Overstock will offer merchandise at prices that are often way
    below routine retail. Consider store brands as your first choice for basic office supplies as many of these
    brands are just as good as the brand name products but cost a fraction as much.
