Follow Richie Havens

This lesson is about the techniques and chords used in "Follow" as made famous by Richie Havens. Played in open D tuning, this great singer/songwriter track is played fairly loose and with lots of feeling. We'll look at the rhythmic strumming approaches here on acoustic, the electric guitar melody, and the use of harmonics and embellishments. We'll end with a full song performance.
