The tuning on the original recording and this lesson video is, starting from the 6th string, Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb. The opening arpeggiated guitar riffs are instantly recognizable and sound beautiful once you get the picking pattern down. There are actually two guitar parts being played together that are very similar. I will explain them both in-depth in the video. There is also a cool single note riff at the end of the verse section. The chorus is the easiest part of the song and shouldn't pose a issue for anyone that can play simple barre chords. The solo, just as with all Lynyrd Skynyrd solos, has some fantastically musical playing and some technically challenging licks as well. I will break it down phrase-by-phrase. I hope you guys enjoy learning this all-time classic power ballad from the great Lynyrd Skynyrd! #simplemanguitarlesson #lynyrdskynyrd #guitarcovers

thanks for all the lessons man, I have a song that I've been trying to work on, I cannot get it completely. I need an expert transcriber especially the solo, this song reminded me of the walk down on the intro technique, I think many people would like this. I'D LOVE TO CHANGE THE WORLD (TEN YEARS AFTER). the lessons that are out there pretty weak. although the introduction is covered reasonably easy, thanks cheers keep it up, awesome

Great lesson.. I always thought Allen Collins was one of the best of his era. So melodic!! Would love a lesson on their song I Know A Little. Steve Gaines killed it on this song.
Derpo 17
Nice, I've always wanted to learn this one but never quite got around to it.
Doesn't the G chord arpeggio end with the open G string instead of the open D? At least that's how I know it.
Stefon Gabriel
I thought sandercoe was the best teacher on here but you might have him beat.👏👏👏
