New in-depth song lesson: “Free Fallin'” by Tom Petty

Here’s a lush, jangly song with a simple 3-chord progression–that’s right, just three chords for the whole song–but some challenging rhythms, and a mysterious blend of acoustic guitars in the studio recording that were a bear to untangle.

The version I teach is what Petty played live: Capo 1, using key of E chord shapes. They sound rich, with nice low bass notes–perfect if you’re playing solo.

But I also show you how to play the song Capo 3–perfect for a friend you want to jam with. Together, these parts sound AMAZING.
