In this Imagine acoustic guitar lesson video we will be covering a special guitar arrangement for the all time John Lennon classic.

I have a arranged the piano parts to be played easily on acoustic guitar with some basic chords and fingerpicking. Imagine is probably John Lennon’s most popular song outside of his work with the Beatles. Luckily, even though it was recorded on piano, it fits quite nicely on the guitar as well.

In this Imagine acoustic guitar lesson video there are 3 parts to learn for the full song and each one is broken down for you.

This was a fun one to do. I love the song and I know there are so many people around the world that would love to learn how to play Imagine on the guitar. So here ya go!!
