“If” Guitar Lesson – Bread

In this "If" guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play all of the chords and fingerpicking patterns to this beautiful song by Bread.

The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.

Guitarist/vocalist David Gates wrote an absolutely perfect love song when he wrote "If". The way he laid out the chords is quite haunting sounding and the vocal melodies are just incredible.

I will cover all of the sections of "If" in the order that each appears on the original recording.

I hope you guys enjoy this in-depth look at this seventies acoustic classic! Carl...
