This laid back acoustic masterpiece has some nice chord work in it and would be great to learn for any guitarist at an upper beginner or higher level.
This The Best of My Love guitar lesson will break down all those acoustic guitar chords and progressions as they appear in the song so it should be very easy to follow.
We will start with the intro which is based around two simple chords albeit with a couple of notes moving within those chords. This technique is very musical and not very difficult to play. The intro is a good time to master it because it will appear throughout most of the rest of the song.
When the verse arrives we will have a more extended chord progression to learn. There are actually 3 verses in the song and the first one you will hear is slightly different than the 2nd and 3rd verses. The 2nd and 3rd verses are identical. Pay close attention to the video lesson so you don't get confused with the differences.
We then will cover the bridge which has fewer chords than the verse but does require and large shift in the left hand.
We will also take a look at in this lesson the chords in the chorus. The chorus is by far the easiest part of the song so you shouldn't have much trouble with it at all.
I hope you guys enjoy learning this beautiful acoustic guitar classic from the Eagles!
