Guitar Songs To Learn 5 of 5 l Easy Songs for Beginners – Take Me Home Country Roads

We’re going to do today, Country Roads. This is the theme song for John Denver and I think it’s what it made it famous, but certainly what he’s best known for and what I like about this song is it chose a good song form. It has a simple song form that is common among many songs even though the style and the rhythm and everything might be different. So let’s go ahead and give it a shot.

    Nicely done, non-capo version for beginners with strumming made easy. Thanks so much. I'm 50 something and bought a guitar 10 days ago. My wife loves John Denver and I think I will be able to a passable version soon with the help of this video.

    Thank you for this! I just moved to West Virginia where Country Roads is the state song…AND my husband just bought me a guitar for Christmas because, well, we just moved to West Virginia! This seems so much easier than a lot of tutorials I've watched. By the way, my mother-in-law grew up in Alameda!

    I just started to play the guitar a couple months ago at age 74. Your instruction for Country Roads is great! I'll need to practice a lot, but I'll let you know when it sounds pretty good. My grandkids will be surprised!
