Against The Wind Guitar Lesson – Bob Seger

In this Against the Wind guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play all the chords for this Grammy award winning hit by Bob Seger.

The foundation of the song is on acoustic guitar with some electric guitar overdubs. I will just be focusing on the acoustic chords which is really all you need to play this great song.

I will be using an acoustic guitar in standard tuning.

The chords remain pretty basic throughout. We will be using mostly open position chords and one bar chord. Hopefully it will be pretty easy for you to follow along.

I will also quickly demonstrate a strumming pattern you can use throughout most of the song for those of you who can get a bit confused as to what to play with the rhythm.

I will demonstrate all the various sections of the song, chord by chord, in the same order they appear on the original recording.

This is a great laid back acoustic song that will work great by the campfire. Hope you enjoy it!
