In this free Karma Police guitar lesson video you will learn how to play Radiohead’s acoustic guitar hit in it’s entirety. Karma Police is one of Radiohead’s biggest hits and quite fun to play as well.

I would put the difficulty level of the Karma Police guitar lesson at upper level beginner. The barre chords and thumb chords will be the only issue challenge in this lesson.

Karma Police is a relatively easy acoustic song with just a couple barre chords to keep it interesting for the more beginner level players out there.

There are 3 sections total to learn and I break each one down separately in the video lesson.

After learning each section of this Karma Police guitar lesson, try practice playing one section into the next. Since each section feels quite different from the others it is important to be able to move freely from one to the other.

By the end of this Karma Police guitar lesson you will easily be able to play the entire song. This is as simple as it gets. I briefly talk about the strumming patterns as well. Once again things are pretty simple in that area as well.

Have fun!

  9. absolutely top notch BTW try an f#major7 instead of the the f#major

  10. Thanks, nice lesson

  11. ahhh…that's why the out chorus on sounds so good when you're on the upstroke changing chords between D and G. You're putting your pinky down early for the G and also taking it off early for the D. Same thing when you go to Emaj. Sorry…brand new to guitar and was wonder why it didn't sound the same. 

    Awesome video…although it takes forever to move inbetween chords…for now. Cheers!

  12. Really easy learning from you ty !
