Grateful Dead “Ripple” Acoustic Guitar Lesson

Tabs for this and all my popular lessons at:

Hello friends,
And welcome to another by request song tutorial. Thanks to popular demand, I’ve created a complete guitar lesson for the Grateful Dead’s 1970 classic “Ripple.” In this free tutorial, I’ll break down my approach to combining Jerry Garcia’s rhythm and lead guitar parts for the intro, and the chord changes and strumming options for the verse and chorus sections. Let’s get started!
