🎸 Ring of Fire • Johnny Cash guitar lesson w/ tabs (easy)

Notes & tabs for this lesson: http://playsongnotes.com/songs/johnny-cash-ring-of-fire/

In this video I’ll show a tutorial on how to play “Ring of Fire”, the classic made famous by Johnny Cash. I’ll teach you how to do a complete solo acoustic version of the song, which isn’t quite how Cash played it given he typically had his band with him. I’ll show you the chords, strumming pattern needed, and also explain how to mimic the sound of the mariachi horns on your guitar. Enjoy!
