The Star Spangled Banner Guitar Lesson – National Anthem
In this Star Spangled Banner guitar lesson video, I will show you note-for-note how to play my version of what seems to be almost a rite-of-passage for guitar players to play ever since Jimi Hendrix did his version of it at Woodstock.
In my version, I stay with the melody without trying to add to much extra stuff in there. That isn't to say that I don't throw some fun guitar techniques in there though. 🙂
As it progresses, things get a little bit flashier on the technical side of things, but it is still pretty doable for most intermediate guitarists and above.
I have included TAB for this lesson below.
