Today's guitar tutorial is a demonstration of how to play "Horse With No Name" by America.
Released in the US in 1972, America's "Horse With No Name" was a smash #1 hit. It remains prominent in pop culture, still in heavy rotation on FM radio and consistently utilized in hit televisions shows, including Breaking Bad, Friends, and BoJack Horseman. It was written by Dewey Bunnell.
This lesson shows you how to play "Horse With No Name" on a 6-string guitar in standard tuning (E A D G B E). The original recording features multiple guitars, including a 12-string. America used an alternate tuning (D E D G B D) on the original recording. Here, we are approximating the feel of the original while remaining in standard tuning.
