Somewhere Over The Rainbow was made famous by the great Judy Garland in the movie The Wizard Of Oz. Since people kept asking me about, how to play Somewhere Over The Rainbow on guitar , I decied to make this guitar tutorial.
This is an intermediate level guitar lesson. You can play fingerpicking or hyprid picking.

The Somewhere Over The Rainbow guitar chords are not really hard to play. The focus is on the dynamics – my chord melody arrangement is rubato, which means free time. Make sure to play the fillers quiet, while the melody notes are being stressed.

In a chord melody arrangement the guitar chords and the melody are played simultaniously. So you’re basically a one man band playing this guitar solo.

I’ve made the Somewhere Over The Rainbow guitar TABS, which can be purchased from one of the above links. I also have the Guitar Pro 7 TABS for Over The Rainbow.

But the part I really love about you and your technique is that you make me look at my own abilities and re examine my own style, these things as you go through the years are pure gold. Thank you Sandra Sherman.
