In the lessons in this song tutorial, Tom Finch will be teaching you "Sister Golden Hair", by America. Tom will first look at the gear and tones, then he'll launch into the intro of the song. Then it's straight through the rest of the form, examining the role of each guitar in the verse, the chorus, and outro. Tom will lead you through a play along, then you take over and jam by yourself with the backing track.
