We here at SWR are not merely avid appreciators of music, we are also practitioners though probably of varying proficiencies. So, we introduce this newest segment of songs we most enjoy playing, either alone or in ensemble. You, our readers, are encouraged to suggest your favorite songs as well (and perhaps a link to some decent tab).
Neil Young – “Out on the Weekend” from Harvest (1972)
I cut my teeth on Neil Young tunes. They are often composed of simple chord progressions under not-too-perfect vocals which make them perfect for the earnest beginner. The even strumming patterns and slow tempo of this song made it a favorite for me when I first started playing guitar. And the recurring Bm and C#m really helped me nail down the Em-shape barre chords.
And I still love playing this song, mostly because of the gently whining vocals which are well within my limited range.
