Learn how to play “Tambourine Man” by Bob Dylan
Hey everyone! This week we’re going to show you how to play “Tambourine Man” by Bob Dylan (every time I write that, I want to put “Hey Mister” in front of it). Anyway, this one’s super duper simple – just 3 chords, D, G and A so it’s great especially if you’re just starting out.
We cover some basic tips on switching between D and G (using a guide finger) and, as usual, there are some simple play-along’s that you can practice along to once you’re comfortable with the chord shapes.
The strumming pattern is pretty straight-forward too. And if you find that it’s a bit too difficult to perform the “root-strum” you’re totally allowed to do a down-stroke instead of the root-strum and it’ll sound fine, so no worries!
